UBC Botanical Garden Apple Festival
11:00 am - 4:00 pm
6804 SW Marine Drive
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!
This year, around 50,000 lbs (22,680 kilos) of apples are sold to thousands of apple lovers.
More than 70 varieties of heritage, new and “tried and true” varieties are available, grown both conventionally and organically.
100 or more varieties of Apple trees grafted onto dwarfing root stock, perfect for the home garden or patio, will be available.
Pears and Quince will also be available in limited amounts.
One of the most popular activities at the Apple Festival is our apple tasting tent located on the Main Lawn.The tasting tent features 60 varieties of new and heritage apples grown in British Columbia.
Tasting sessions are $5 from 11:00am to 3:30pm Saturday and Sunday. Please note that not all the apples in the tasting tent will be available for sale due to very limited availability of some heritage varieties.
Cost: $4 entry, cash only. Free, children under 12.
