Welcome to Osoyoos! 

I am honoured to be the Mayor of this wonderful town, strategically located in the South Okanagan Valley. We offer year round resort facilities and activities, while many of us are fortunate enough to live here full time. 

Recognized as Canada’s only pocket desert, we enjoy hot dry summers beside the warmest lake in Canada. Many generations of families have spent summers camping, picking sweet ripe fruit and boating and swimming in our lake.

Be sure to attend our annual Cherry Fiesta events on July 1, including parade, live music and our wonderful Fireworks display at Gyro Park. Our Farmers’ Market is held weekly from May to September, with fresh produce, artisans’ crafts, wine tasting from local award-winning wineries, and music featuring multi-talented Osoyoos musicians. We recommend a variety of activities- from biking and hiking on numerous trails, playing on championship golf courses, fishing for salmon, trout or bass, to learning about our unique ecology at our Osoyoos Desert Center or the NK’Mip Desert Cultural Centre. 

Whether you are an annual summer visitor, a winter Snowbird residing at one of the many motels or resorts, or attending a conference, you will soon love our small town.

On behalf of Osoyoos Town Council and staff, I sincerely welcome you to Osoyoos. We offer “Canada’s warmest welcome” to everyone.

Warmest regards,
Mayor Sue McKortoff
