Bala Cranberry Festival

October 14-16, 2016 is the Bala Cranberry Festival. A true community celebration of the Ontario Cranberry harvest! The small town of Bala, the Cranberry Capital of Ontario, welcomes visitors with food, live entertainment, arts and crafts, carnival activities, and small town hospitality. Buses (free with admission) run to our Cranberry Farms, where visitors can see the aquatic harvesting of Cranberries, and pick up fresh fruit to take home. There’s even Cranberry wine! Admission to the festival is $8 for adults, and it’s always a great time, rain or shine! Come see the festival this year – you’ll be amazed!
