THE LAUREL PACKINGHOUSE

Join us at The Laurel Packinghouse for appetizers (included) and beverages (not included) for a truly authentic evening surrounded by Canadian growing history.

Feel the ambiance of the oldest and largest packinghouse in BC: The Laurel Packinghouse was built in 1917 and completed in 1918, using bricks made locally from Knox Mountain clay. At that time, what is now Kelowna’s Cultural District was packed with fruit warehouses, packinghouses, canneries, and a sawmill. Horses, boxcars, and trucks jostled for position on tracks and dirt roads.
