Join the free fun in downtown Fort Langley on Saturday, October 6, 2012 from 10:00am to 4:00pm. A pancake breakfast starts off the day at 10:00am and is following by cooking demos, live music, over 70 market vendors selling everything from crafts to specialty candy. Of course there will also be cranberry sales throughout the day.

There will also be cranberry programs & activities at Fort Langley National Historic Site, BC Farm Museum and Langley Centennial Museum.

Road closures will be on Glover between 96 St and Mavis Ave, Mary Ave between Glover & Church, Church St from Mary St to Marina Park, and King St from Mary St to Mavis Ave. There will be a shuttle from Walnut Grove Secondary in case you don’t want to look for parking in Fort Langley (there will be some parking available at Fort Langley National Historic Site).

  1. I’ve been going to this festival for years-it’s a Thanksgiving weekend tradition. I can’t think of a better way to welcome Autumn and celebrate the holiday!

    Does anybody knows the name of the flamenco singer playing at the festival? Great musician!

    I was quite disappointed in the festival. We had gone to the Garlic Festival in New Denver a few weeks before and were astounded at the difference between the two. Perhaps some of your organizers should go there to see how they organize the event. There were lots of different garlic items for sale but at the Crfanberry featival there was only one vendor selling cranberries. Bakeries did not promote cranberry baked items but they were there almost as an afterthought and not much selection. We were told by one vendor who attends both festivals the Garlic Festival is usually her best show of the year.

    Just some rambling thoughts.
