Slack Alley is coming back to Penticton for three days starting on June 25.

The project transformed the dingy back alley between Martin Street and Main Street in 2022 into a colourful and popular sight.

Slackwater Brewing partnered with the Downtown Business Improvement Association, the city and the Penticton Art Gallery for the transformation.

Now Slack Alley is back for three days of fun and charitable fundraising, with a day featuring live music by local musicians and DJs, a mini market, donations to local downtown charities, children’s activities, beverage stations, delicious food and more.

On June 25, the charity of choice will be the South Okanagan Immigrant and Community Services, and the alley will be set up and showcase inspiration from Slackwater.

While on July 23, it’s time to get your groove on at a Grooveyard-inspired event, with charity donations going to the South Okanagan Women in Need Society.

The final day on Aug. 20 pays tribute to the Bumwrap and the plentiful beach vibes of the summer. Donations go to support the Penticton Art Gallery’s children’s art programs.

All three events are family-friendly and kick off at 2 p.m., running until 6 p.m. each day.

The Slack Alley project was designed to bring awareness to the concept of turning downtown alleys into spaces that are more than areas for dumpsters and deliveries.
