Heritage Week is an annual event that takes place during the third full week in February. It celebrates and showcases local heritage across the province.
Every year, Heritage BC launches Heritage Week by choosing a theme and sending official posters to libraries, schools, municipal offices and politicians across the province. We support and promote organizations who host local heritage events for their communities, and encourage municipalities to issue proclamations formalizing the week.
Heritage is the layering of stories that describe the uniqueness of a community’s past and present while informing the future. This year’s Heritage Week: Layer by Layer, invites you to dig deeper into your community’s past and explore the many layers and stories that your unique community holds. Take some time this week to learn something new about the many “layers” of the place you call home.
Watch for the Central Okanagan Heritage Week Events. The schedule will be posted in early February.
