The BeadTrails experience is a treasure hunt that encompasses neighbourhoods, businesses and activities in twenty communities in the region, including Big White and Silver Star. Discover wineries, arts and culture, family-fun and a multitude of stores.
The adventure starts at any participating business or Visitor Centre, where you pick up a bracelet and brochure and plan the route you will take to collect unique bead charms. Every bracelet showcases meaningful memories of your day trip or vacation. Where there’s a bead there’s a story so ask the venue the story behind their charm!
The BeadTrails Experience Store is in Summerland, B.C.
Check out the interactive map on our website or pick up a brochure to find out where the other 180 BeadTrails locations are!
We also have a large, bright art-space and hold workshops and classes!
