Why Canada Fruit Fest?
Collaborative Community Highs
A fluid, dream-like state of existence comes on softly as you enter the festival grounds. Scents of fresh fruit, green grass, and open lakeside air fill the space between people. Healers, mystics, creatives and connected souls all join hands together as we rejoice in the 4 day bootstrapped community that is Canada Fruit Fest. Shared intentions, common goals, and like minds unite for a beautiful time together. A time that will never be forgotten and forever cherished in the hearts of those who attend.
Fresh Fruit & Fun Friends
Locally grown in the dark, mineral rich soils of the Okanagan Valley - The Fruit Capital of the Canada, our menu will not only satisfy your hunger, but will uplift, regenerate, and invigorate you to be, do and have so much more than you ever thought possible. Choose from and salivate over our time tested assortment of properly fresh ripe fruit, organic veggies, light dips, creamy sauces, and exotic fruits. Having a hard time deciding what to eat? Any choice is a good choice at the Canada Fruit Fest ❤️.
Live Music from Heavy Hitting Acts
You can see the sun setting. The sky is orange. You can hear bass heavy beats in the distance. You walk a bit closer to the stage and you notice your body starts moving in new ways. Your friends begin to dance, and you find yourself following suit. Your favourite Canadian artists and musical acts are here. Some you may have never even heard of. Some you’ll never forget. Last year our attendees enjoyed the sounds of Bombargo, IMUR, FRASE, and many other great artists. What will 2019 bring?
Pleasant Lakeside Camping
It’s 7am. You open your eyes and you feel a rush of excitement as you remember where you are. You don’t want this day to end, and it hasn’t even started yet. You’re lakeside, adjacent to a field of meditators, yogis, and fruit lovers. You unzip your tent and see a stunning view of the lake. You head out and have the time of your life. Later that night, after the music settles down and you finish your late night conversations with new friends, you head back to sleep under the night sky, love your life and see a shooting star.
Okanagan Lakeside Bliss
Enjoy a relaxed and empowering start to your day with morning meditation & yoga sessions on the banks of Lake Okanagan. Just as a raw vegan diet cleanses the body, our unique yoga & meditation workshops work together to bring a new state of clarity to the mind.
Live Music & Dancing
Some of Canada’s best musical acts can be found here at the Canada Fruit Fest. This is the world’s first and only fruit AND music festival after all.
Expect to hear the sounds of bands like Bombargo & IMUR, and DJ’s like FRASE. Many other great bands & DJ’s will be gracing the stage at the 2019 festival.
Friends & Fun
At our 2018 festival, we heard time and time again how the atmosphere was reminiscent of summer camp. This is, in part, thanks to our myriad of group activities.
At the 2019 festival try your hand (feet?) at slacklining, get creative with face painting, and join one of our notorious icebreaker games. Then if you think you can handle it put your hat in the ring for our Annual Banana Eating Contest!
That’s not all we offer, though. We also have speed dating, group hikes up Sugarloaf Mountain, hacky sack circles, handstand classes, and so much more. Join the community and surround yourself with other like-minded people by getting involved with your favourite group activities.
Fresh, Raw, Organic Cuisine
Choose from a delectable assortment of fresh fruit and veggies and raw vegan dips, sauces, and fats. Mostly all of our produce is local, organic & picked properly ripe just for us.
If you are not vegan or raw vegan this a great opportunity to undertake a 4-day raw food cleanse and experience the benefits of a raw vegan diet first hand, in a supportive, encouraging & inspiring environment.
