Annual Events at the SS Sicamous
The SS Sicamous is the largest surviving stern wheeler in Canada. It is now preserved as a heritage site, museum and must-see tourist attraction. You can find us on the beach in Penticton (at the South of Okanagan Lake). As well as a museum, the ship also hosts a range of fundraising events and activities that take place through out the year.
