The Cranberry Festival was started in 1995 to celebrate the annual harvest and the history of the cranberry in the area and Fort Langley’s earlier years. Annual attendance is about 35,000 people! This grassroots event is supported by the local community and, with its success, has grown to become a much loved annual event, celebrating and recognizing the cranberry’s role in our local history going back thousands of years.
While celebrating the region’s history and tradition, the Cranberry Festival aims to create a great day out, supporting local businesses and vendors, entertaining and bringing the community and visitors together in the heart of Fort Langley.

Cranberry Bog Tours
This year’s cranberry harvest is looking as stunning as ever at Riverside Cranberry Farm. Registered guests can take in the beautiful valley views with a Harvest Walk. Stroll the perimeter of the field while it’s being actively harvested to see the harvesting machine working or to see the cranberries being pumped off the field. You can even put on a pair of farm waders for the Cranberry Plunge – an Instagram-worthy photo op. Visit the farm store to purchase farm to table products and fresh baked goods and beverages. Be sure to stock up on farm-fresh cranberries for your autumn meals and gatherings.
