We invite you to be part of Downtown Kamloops’ exciting special events line-up and invite you to look through our Sponsorship Package.

TRU Santa Claus Parade

Thompson Rivers University has been the presenting sponsor since 2017. Their values of community and sustainability are reflected in this family-friendly event. The Santa Claus Parade is one of the biggest events in Downtown Kamloops and attracts approximately 30,000 visitors from Kamloops and the surrounding areas. 2019 was the first parade held at dusk and saw a record-breaking turnout.

Fulton Welcome Winter Block Party

The Fulton Winter Block Party is a Canadian classic. Bring out your favourite Plaid and winter boots because this is an event you won’t want to miss. Fulton has been sponsoring this festival since 2018 and has seen incremental growth in vendors and visitors in the last two years.

Fresh Slice Hoops In The Loops

Bank 3 Basketball Tournament

This event was introduced to Downtown Kamloops in 2019 and the 300 Block of Victoria Street was transformed as a first-ever street sporting event. There was a live DJ to keep up the energy and alcohol was served at the event for the adults. Fresh Slice was the title sponsor with the idea to support Kids sports.
