The Downtown Vernon Association is inviting local groups to be a part of the 23rd annual Sunshine Festival.

It takes place June 17 and it’s the largest annual event held in downtown Vernon.

“The Sunshine Festival is an all-day event jam-packed with entertainment, vendors and activities for everyone to enjoy,” said Hailey Rilkoff, with the DVA.

“This event is a great opportunity for local businesses and not-for-profit organizations to come together in a fun and exciting environment and publicize their products or services while connecting with the community. There is a great benefit in registering your business or organization and we strongly encourage all to do so.”

Local businesses and not-for-profit groups can participate with a sales booth, information booth, activity or game.

“With the potential to see 20,000 attendees from around the North Okanagan, the Sunshine Festival is a great way to connect one on one with potential clients and community members,” said Rilkoff.

The Sunshine Festival registration deadline is May 31. Registration forms can be found at www.downtownvernon.com.
