We want the community of Rutland to be proud of where they live and enjoy all the amazing things…
The Rutland May Days parade is one of the longest running parades in the Okanagan, and this year we are celebrating our 60th year! Get ready to line the streets of Rutland Road, Hartman Road, and Shepherd road on Saturday, May 18th. Parade will start at 11:00 AM sharp! This year we are celebrating our community’s culture. We are so lucky to be apart of a diverse and amazing community in Rutland and all of Kelowna. This year we are hoping to attract many local societies, clubs, organizations, businesses, and groups in order to organize an unforgettable parade! Whether you are enjoying the parade or participating in the parade, our goal is simple. We want everyone to enjoy the experience.
Once again, Shooting Star Amusements will be setting up at Rutland May Days! Shooting Star Amusements is a Canadian mobile midway company featuring rides, games, cotton candy and snow cones. On our midway, guests are treated to lots of fun and special entertainment. Our Carnival has classic rides from the Bumper Cars to the Ferris Wheel creating fun for all ages. Our prize games are entertaining for children as well as adults. Look for the Shooting Star Midway in Roxby Square for May Days!
Each year we try to bring more and more events to entertain young and old! With Live Musical and Comedy Acts being confirmed to Big West Wrestling and The Knights of Columbus Bingo. There is something for everyone at Rutland May Days! Watch the Schedule as more information is finalized!
As part of the May Days Celebration, our annual May Days Market receives tonnes of foot traffic all weekend long. We are currently searching for the best market vendors to be apart of this years show! We are looking for food trucks, Arts + Craft Vendors, Vintage, and Clothing vendors
We’re proud of Rutland May Days and everything that has been accomplished over the last 60 years. To run the event takes time, donations, and lots of people. We are always looking for people who can help volunteer during the Rutland May Days. We offer short shifts, compensation packages, community, and a whole whack of fun. We need volunteers to help in our information tent, clean-up, Parade, track donations, first aid, and the list goes on! If you are spunky, proud of our community, and want to get involved but don’t want a long term commitment, the Rutland May Days is the best place to start! Volunteering can give you the opportunity to try something new, gain experience, develop skills, improve your career prospects, build confidence and meet new people. Volunteering is an excellent leisure activity.
