Culture, history, tradition ~

The Okanagan Military Tattoo is an event that will stir the heart and feed the soul. It’s Vernon’s largest annual indoor event and Western Canada’s only military tattoo.

It’s two hours of action packed, heart pounding, fast-paced family entertainment at the Kal Tire Place in Vernon on Saturday, July 27 and Sunday, July 28.

Over 550 performers will take part in the event, including massed pipes and drums, highland and ethnic dancers, military and civilian bands, cultural troupes, precision drills, and singers.

Featured performers include the 65-member Brentwood Imperial Youth Band from the UK and the Calgary Round-Up Band. 

The Regimental Band of the British Columbia Regiment (Duke of Connaught’s Own) will participate in the Tribute to the Veterans segment of the program as that regiment was involved in the Battle of Normandy.

Tickets for the 2019 Okanagan Military Tattoo – starting at $25 including all fees and taxes- are now on sale at TicketSeller in Vernon 250-549-7469 or ticketseller.ca.   

The Tattoo will be held indoors – in air conditioned comfort – and all seating is reserved. Special ticket prices apply to seniors and veterans.  Second World War and  Korean War Veterans are invited to attend free of charge.
