Penticton has an abundance of events especially during the summer months. In fact, there has been talk that Penticton is the Festival and Event Capital of Canada. Although there is a little less happening during the winter time, the South Okanagan Events Center most always gets some big name acts. Some performers Penticton has seen in the past include Rihanna, Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood and Cirque De Soleil.
