The Cranberry Festival is held each year on the Saturday of the Thanksgiving weekend in the heart of historic Fort Langley. We celebrate the harvest and history of the cranberry in Fort Langley.
Cool, unique vendors, free entertainment, pancake breakfast, and family activities await everyone for what is always a great day in the centre of the village.
The last few years we have had a great weather, and generated attendance of approximately 60,000 people from all over the region, from Chilliwack to West Vancouver.
We are looking for enthusiastic people to join our team of event-day volunteers!
