Kimberley Chamber to host open house

All the info on JulyFest and Kimberley Ambassador Program

The Kimberley Chamber of Commerce will be hosting an open house on Thursday, May 26 from 5 to 7 pm at Centennial Hall.

At the Open House you will get all the information you need about JulyFest, including the location of the bocce tournament. At present, because of the new Rotary Spray Park, the location for the Canadian Bocce Championships is somewhat up in the air. The spray park will be built at the current bocce site. By the date of the open house the Chamber and city will have decided on a new location.

Also to be announced at the open house will be the bands who will play the arena party on Saturday night, and all the rest of the scoop on Kimberley’s biggest festival weekend.

Also at the Open House, you can get more information on the upcoming Kimberley Ambassador Program, which the Chamber of Commerce, along with the College of the Rockies will be offering on June 2 at Trickle Creek Lodge. This day long session, which Chamber Manager Mike Guarnery hopes will attract significant buy-in from all those who come into contact with visitors, will feature a panel of 10 representatives from community organizations. You will gain a thorough knowledge of activities, events and attractions available in Kimberley, allowing you to best share the information with visitors.

Information will be shared on fishing, rafting and golf, as well as events such as the Canada Day, Medieval Fest, JulyFest, upcoming bike races, the Farmers’ Market and more. You will also receive information about Kimberley’s ever-growing trail system, the Underground Mining Railway and the local arts scene.

Contact the Chamber at or call 250-427-3666.
