Do you want to meet new people, make friends, and have fun? All are welcome at Shy and Social Kelowna--shy and outgoing people alike. This group is modeled after the hugely successful Extremely Shy - Looking for Friends? Meetup group in Vancouver, BC, the largest Meetup group in Canada. What makes Extremely Shy successful?

• It is open to shy and outgoing people, introverts and extroverts

• It is made up of multiple organizers, each who add their own talents and interests in order to offer different activities 

• It allows different types of people to find their own niche under a common group name

• It is focused around having fun and making friends naturally

• Regular activities include a weekly board games night, disc golf, movie nights, pub nights, Café Philosophy, potluck BBQ and picnic events, laser tag, comedy/improv nights, and coffee/tea/bubble tea meets, for a few examples

The aim of Shy and Social Kelowna is to provide new niches and activities for a variety of people, organized by a variety of people. Everyone is welcome, included, and has a voice. While pub and night club type of social activities are certainly welcome, this group aims to provide activities that also appeal to a quieter crowd. Meeting new people can be difficult and intimidating for some, but often all it takes is finding the right event for you to break the ice! If you want to come out but need help overcoming shyness, the organizers would be happy to assist you.

Do you want to see an activity run in this group?  You could be the one to make it happen!  This group is always recruiting organizers to run events they wish to make happen! Once you're a member, contact the group leader, Dianne, and she would be happy to hear your ideas and welcome you as an organizer.  It's the people and events that make a club, and with more organizers, more diverse types of events are possible! Multiple organizers are needed to offer all the kinds of events listed above, and also add other activities to make this a totally awesome group!

While this group wishes to help businesses by hosting in public spaces, we ask that you do not attempt to use this group to promote your business or make profits. See our policy page for a complete list of rules.

Come and join us and find a place of your own in the heart of the Okanagan valley!  For members, joining is absolutely free and will remain free.  We hope to see you soon!

We also have a Facebook page to discuss and post related content!  Check us out at:
