Downtown Kelowna Concierge

Each summer a group of students are hired to patrol the Downtown Kelowna area acting as ambassadors offering assistance and information to the public. This popular program creates a fun, inviting atmosphere for tourists and locals visiting the Downtown Kelowna area.

The Downtown Kelowna Concierge, previously known as Biz Patrol, also assists at the Downtown Association events, hands out Downtown Kelowna brochures and helps tourists with directions, taking photos and making recommendations for shopping, dining and entertainment. The Downtown Kelowna Concierge works from May until the end of August and employs full-time college or university students.

For more information on the Concierge, please contact Michele Lyons at 250.862.3515 or email at michele@downtownkelowna.com.

Downtown Kelowna On Call

On Call program was launched in May of 2008, bringing all security and ambassador duties in-house.  The team in red uniforms are staff members of the Downtown Kelowna Association who truly believe that this is “our neighbourhood to share”.

Trained On Call staff cover a 42-square block radius between Monday to Friday from 7:30am to 9:30pm and Saturday from 11:00am to 7:00pm, ready to deal with front line issues related to auto and commercial property crime, safety, hospitality and the social environment in Kelowna's premier town centre.

Whether it's providing information about community services, giving directions to tourists, escorting staff or customers to their vehicles, or providing emergency assistance, On Call team members are ready to assist when needed, making the Downtown area the best place to work, shop, live and visit.

If you have a concern about safety in the Downtown, contact Downtown Kelowna On Call on their cell phone at (250)470-9058.
