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.

The Antique Machines Show
A display of unusual and antique machinery, set out on the grass in front of the SS Sicamous. The collection is owned by volunteers from the Old Boys with Old Toys club.
