Visitor Guide

Penticton’s name evolved from the Interior Salish word “snpintktn” which is commonly translated as “a place to stay forever”.  When you visit the city for the 2013 World Financial Group Continental Cup of Curling, you may not stay… but you’ll definitely remember the experience forever!

Situated in the heart of BC’s wine country – between two sparkling lakes surrounded by highlands and mountains in the Okanagan Valley – Penticton is one of Canada’s natural wonders.  The city boasts a well-developed arts scene that has been augmented by a host of new restaurants, accommodations and museums.

The Penticton Lakeside Resort, Convention Centre & Casino is the first choice for your stay at the World Financial Group Continental Cup.  Located in an elegant setting on the shores of Okanagan Lake, the complex features more than 200 guestrooms and suites – each with a personal balcony.
