2022 Okanagan Dream Rally
During what is usually the busiest time of the year for our Okanagan Dream Rally Organizers, we’ve spent our days cautiously, but optimistically, watching our amazing community begin to reopen and reconnect.
While we know the future of the Dream Rally looks incredibly bright, it was another especially difficult decision to postpone the event until the summer of 2022.
While we share your disappointment, we also believe that due to the nature of the event it was best to be clear of any potential restrictions to fully exemplify all the amazing things the Okanagan Dream Rally has to offer.
It has been a challenging year for everyone within our community and beyond. We ask you now, while we prepare for our biggest and best year yet, that you help where you can and support those who need it.
You can pledge to join us for 2022 – whether as a driver, sponsor or to make a donation, which you can do on our website!
* OFFICIAL 2022 DATE TBA! *
We can’t wait to see you at the starting line ??
The 2020 Dream Rally Pit Stop:
With a heavy heart, we have made the mindful decision to make 2020 a Pit Stop for the Okanagan Dream Rally allowing us to tune our engines and come back bigger and better than ever on August 1st, 2021!
Since 2016 the Okanagan Dream Rally has been an annual event impacting and positively changing the lives of thousands of people each year. The Dream Rally Team is incredibly grateful for the ongoing support of our sponsors, donors, drivers, dream rally families, and the unbelievable Okanagan community. Without you, everything we’ve created and the funds we’ve raised would not have been possible.
In just 4 years the Okanagan Dream Rally has raised over $1.6 million for local charities including The Ronald McDonald House BC/Yukon, JoeAnna’s House, Autism Okanagan, COHA, and KidSport.
We are proud to announce that the 2019 Okanagan Dream Rally raised $804,000 for charity with proceeds going directly to Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon and Yukon and KGH Foundation in support of building JoeAnna’s House.

WHO THE DREAM RALLY SUPPORTS:
From 2018-2020 we are committed to helping Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon raise $500,000 to help families staying within the organization’s facilities receive the care they need.
In 2018, over 30% of the families staying at the facility located in Vancouver were from the Okanagan Valley. This really struck home with us and was a motivating factor in our decision to make this commitment.
The August Family Foundation is proud to announce that in addition to supporting the Ronald McDonald House BC/Yukon, proceeds from the Okanagan Dream Rally will also be donated to the KGH Foundation in support of their newest project, JoeAnna’s House.
JoeAnna’s House is expected to change the way families experience hospital care for their loved ones, keeping everyone under one roof.
A BRIEF HISTORY:
August 7, 2016, marked the date of the inaugural Okanagan Dream Rally and it was just the beginning for both what this event means to us, and what it means to our community.
To date, the August Family Foundation has raised $827,000 together to support some incredible causes in our community.
With the Okanagan Dream Rally, we hope to provide special children and their families with an incredibly fun-filled experience of being in the co-pilot seat of a dream car for a day. In addition, providing opportunities for our community, public figures, and businesses to support a good cause and make a difference locally in their community.
Our mission is simple. We want to put a smile on the face of a child in need and provide them with a day that they will never forget. With the help of incredible drivers, sponsors, and those donating towards this event, we are able to raise funds for causes that have a profound impact our community.
Participating children of the Okanagan Dream Rally will have their very own high-end rally car and driver for a day. The community and its spectators will partake in the street excitement while the most incredible supercars and sports cars from throughout Western Canada start their engines in Kelowna and circuit through the beautiful parts of the Okanagan Valley including Peachland and Penticton for an experience of a lifetime.
