Every year Tourism Kelowna produces the Official Visitors’ Guide and Map, Wine Trails Guide, and Farm to Table Guide. In order for visitors across the city to get a copy of these materials, our Visitor Centre staff distribute them to all Tourism Kelowna stakeholders as well as a large number of high traffic locations such as gas stations and shopping centres.
