The Enchanted Jungle Circus!


Join us deep inside the jungle and follow the story of an outsider who finds himself in a mysterious and enchanting world. Little does he know just what’s in store…

Get lost in displays of aerials, acrobatics and other miraculous acts of circus! Habitat and Cosmic Co-Motion are gearing up to bring you a circus show like you’ve never seen before… There’s nothing tame about it. Dress up in your best UV reactive jungle themed outfit for the chance to win some spectacular prizes!


Whether you’re new to the circus or a seasoned clown connoisseur, here’s 10 reasons why you should come play with us!


1.     It’s one of a kind! You’ve never seen a show like this in Kelowna. It’s the perfect combination of beauty, athleticism, humor and danger. It’s got everything!

2.     The circus shows are constantly evolving! With new themes and acts, you never know who- or what you’re going to get.

3.     The atmosphere! Habitat is proud to be a safe, fun and comfortable venue for everyone. Not to mention the costumes and set are intricate and beautiful!

4.     You can feel great about supporting local businesses and organizations who are all about making the artistic scene in Kelowna thrive!

6.     The combination of awesome music, and stunning performances will make you forget all your worries...  and probably the outside world all-together. What deadline? What is reality? Who cares?

7.     The clowns are the cute kind, not the scary- hide in the gutter drain kind.

8.     If you bring a date, they’ll probably love you forever because you have such cool and unique taste. Go you!

9.     You can bid on amazing silent auction items and win prizes for dressing up in your best UV reactive jungle attire. Wild thang… you make our heart sing!

In the run up to the 2015 Canada Winter Games, a $2,000 Pacific Western Brewing (PWB) Community Foundation Hometown Heroes bursary has been awarded to Kamloops track & field hammer thrower Adam Keenan.

Ceremonies at The Habitat in Kelowna marked Round Three of four rounds of bursary awards ahead of the start of the Games in Prince George in February.

Keenan said: “I feel that I can be a positive and inspiring choice as a Hometown Hero because I strive to be a strong role model who promotes physical activity through my love of sport. Thank you for selecting me to receive this important bursary. It is really difficult to fund myself through this path that I have chosen, and being awarded funding will help me towards my goal of making the Canadian Olympic Team in 2016.”

PWB’s special guest at the event was Shane Beatty, head coach of The Okanagan Sun Football Team. “The Pacific Western Brewing Hometown Heroes Program is designed to support the goals of the 2015 Canada Winter Games,” Coach Beatty said. “These goals are all about sportsmanship, leadership and citizenship. Today is also about recognizing an outstanding athlete who believes in going for gold and puts down his very best every day.”

Kazuko Komatsu, owner and CEO of PWB, said: “Adam will be one of 16 young athletes and other community heroes whose extraordinary endeavours inspire us all.”

PWB is continuing to accept applications to the end of January 2015 for the final round of selections. In each round a Hometown Hero has been selected from BC’s four major regions – the Northern and Southern Interior, Greater Vancouver and Vancouver Island.

In the first round in May the winners included: Quesnel Paralympics hopeful Landon McGauley, Kelowna speed skater Nick Goplen, Port Alberni educator and coach Tom McEvay and North Vancouver javelin-throwing track star Andy White. In July, second round winners included: Revelstoke Freeskiier Adam McCraw, Smithers gymnastics coach Alana Jensen, UBC women’s hockey player Danielle Dube and Victoria Special Olympics figure skater Emily Walzak.

Candidates who were not picked in the first three rounds will continue to be valid contenders in the final round. Application to the Hometown Heroes program is open to any BC resident currently engaged in sports as an athlete or coach, or otherwise excelling in a community mentoring activity. Applicants must be at least 19 years old.

Application forms are available online at Email the application to: or mail to: Hometown Heroes Bursaries, PWB Community Foundation, 3876 Norland Avenue, Burnaby, BC V5G 4T9.
