Harvest Festival celebrates local bounty

On Sept. 24, the Kettle Valley Food Co-op will host their annual Harvest Festival from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Boundary Museum.

It’s harvest time and that means it’s also time for the Harvest Festival.

On Sept. 24, the Kettle Valley Food Co-op will host their annual Harvest Festival from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Boundary Museum, 6145 Reservoir Road.

As another productive summer is coming to a close, you’re encouraged to round up the entire family to share in a time-honoured tradition for all ages with delicious food, live local music and games!

The Boundary Museum and Boundary Family and Individual Services Society also partner in this event with the museum providing the beautiful location on Spencer Hill, traditional wood-fired bread-baking demonstrations, Doukhobor borscht and a blacksmith on site making medallions for the kids.

Boundary Family and Individual Services Society and Success By Six will be providing children’s activities and a soup by donation.

The Harvest Festival is an opportunity to highlight our community’s agricultural wealth, amazing chefs, farmers and musicians.

Meet and greet some of our hard-working farmers, chat up long-lost neighbours….bring your friends!

Come buy local harvest vegetables and honey from a variety of farm stands. Sip some great coffee from Festival Espresso and Scott Brother’s Coffee roasters while listening to music and watching local Irish dancers and belly dancers.

At 11 a.m. the Boundary 4H Multi Club will put on their dog agility demonstration.

For lunch there will be many options to choose from.  Chef Mike from Knotweed Restaurant and Chef Kayla from the Wooden Spoon Bistro will be there with delicious food stands.

Berryman Heirloom Gardens will have a mixed stand of produce, readymade salads and preserves. Dave’s Donuts and Fries will be there for an afternoon treat!   Apple pies will be available made by From the Hearth Bakery.

The popular cider press demonstration powered by volunteers will be on site, with tastings of course!

For something new this year there will be a Farmer Race! Registration is from 10 a.m. – noon and the race starts at 1 p.m.!  Everyone is welcome to enter this obstacle/relay style race and costumes are encouraged in this fun, family friendly event. Winners will be announced at 3 p.m. with prizes from local businesses!  Entry is $5 minimum donation.

Come join us for a wholesome, fun-filled day! For more information, visit our Facebook page or contact Yelena Churchill at 250-443-1402.
