Find your way to Center of Gravity! Located in the heart of Kelowna there are many ways to get to the festival.
We’ve partnered with our friends over at Sharethebus to give you a quick and easy way to get to MECOG this year!
Shuttles leave from Vancouver, Abbotsford, Vernon and Kamloops and get you right to the festival site. Who knows, there might even be some special surprises in store for shuttle riders…
Shuttle seats start at $15. Get your tickets before they fill up!
Before we tell you where to park, we’re going to suggest that you don’t drive downtown! Ask a local, navigating summer weekend traffic in downtown Kelowna is zero fun, especially when you’re looking for a long-term parking spot. Our suggestion is to take advantage of our great Shuttle Program! If that’s not your cup of tea then may we also suggest cabs, public transit, riding a bike or even walking! If you still need to drive down please use the following resources: Downtown Kelowna Parking Map (please note that City Lot #13 at City Park will be closed for the event) **WHERE YOU CANNOT PARK** There are parking restrictions for the downtown area – please take a look at this map to make sure you know which residential streets you cannot park on. Signs will be visibly posted on all streets and all un-authorized vehicles will be towed. MOST IMPORTANTLY – PLEASE DO NOT DRIVE IMPAIRED! We want to make sure everyone gets home from the festival safe!
The Kelowna Airport (YLW) is just a 30 minute drive from the festival grounds and has direct flights from most Western Canadian airports and Seattle. Flying from Calgary? Check out this jumpOn Jumpstarter flight for the opportunity to take advantage of affordable airfare!
Once you get to Kelowna, leave the transportation up to us with MECOG’s awesome Shuttle Program providing you with safe transportation to and from the festival site, after parties, highway hotels and UBCO dorms. For more info, click here.
