Barefoot Beach Resort is amping up the excitement of the summer season by adding a regular Wednesday night market.

Barefoot Beach Resort is amping up the excitement of the summer season by adding a regular Wednesday night market to their busy schedule of events.

“Night markets have their own special magic,” said Laurel Burnham, market manager. “We are very much looking forward to bringing more excitement and interest to this great venue.”

Until Sept. 9 there will be a market held weekly from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Barefoot Beach campground, directly behind the restaurant.

The market will feature crafters, artists and food producers from the South Okanagan. As well there will be live music and special entertainment and guests throughout the season.

For more information on signing up as a vendor contact Burnham at

As well as the weekly markets, Barefoot Beach Resort has announced a summer concert series, consisting of eight shows. The next event takes place on July 4, as the official Scottish Festival after-party starting at 6 p.m. Taking the Grower’s Cider Beach Stage is Maritime Kitchen Party and award-winning fiddler Rod Olstad.

Admission is $25 and includes transportation to the event from the Scottish Festival grounds at 7:30 p.m. for the 8 p.m. show.

The Maritime Kitchen Party trio brings the well known tradition of their namesake to the stage. Led by Steve Smith, the group plays anything from Celtic fisherman songs to fun and upbeat pop music.

This event is followed by Vancouver’s hippest blues-funk band Brickhouse on July 11.

Tickets for events can be purchased at the resort front office, the Banana Cabana located on the Barefoot Beach and at the door. All concert series events are 19 and older. Food and drinks are available for purchase. Venue is cash only.
