A family event for all ages, the UBC Apple Festival celebrates one of British Columbia’s favourite fruits. From children learning about the diversity of apples to those who remember tasting heritage apples in their youth, the Apple Festival is a great opportunity to not only discover more about this delicious fruit, but have a whole lot of fun doing it! Admission is $5 each (children 12 and under are FREE). Be sure to bring cash as there is an additional $5 fee to try the delights in the Tasting Tent; there will also be vendors on site.
Kids can engage in a number of activities in the Children’s Area, ranging from face painting, games and storytelling. They can learn about biodiversity, the environment, bees and other pollinators and more from our outreach partners. And don’t miss everybody’s favourite—the Leaf Pile!
We attended the Apple Festival a number of years ago and absolutely loved it! Purchasing tickets to the Tasting Tent is an absolute must. Dozens upon dozens of apple varieties to try. It was a great activity to do with our kids!
