Celebrating the Harvest Season is a world-wide, ancient tradition that generally falls near the Sunday of the Harvest Moon (generally late September or early October). Here in Maple Ridge, it is a popular time for festivities and food celebrations that highlight our appreciation for our beautiful country-side, bountiful crops, community and family connections.
Maple Ridge’s attractive country-side and deep-rooted agricultural traditions inspire a number of harvest celebrations that involve farm-to-table food/drink experiences and celebrations of successful crops. Here is a sample of the Harvest Season Celebrations taking place in early Fall:
Haney Farmers Market: Saturdays in Memorial Peace Park, 9 am to 2 pm, meet the local farmers, artisans and naturalists and enjoy home-grown entertainment, environmental displays and other activities in a beautiful park setting.
Golden Ears Cheesecrafters: Home to a number of farm-to-table events and activities. Enjoy Afternoon Tea on the farm every Saturday, 1 to 3 pm, and stop by anytime to taste and shop for farm fresh artisan cheese and other products made on-site.
Kingfishers Waterfront Bar & Grill: Features locally sourced food and drink and hosts live music every Friday and Saturday. An award-winning blues venue with a spectacular view of the mighty Fraser River.
Laity Pumpkin Patch: the popular pumpkin patch opens September 28. Find your perfect pumpkin on 28 acres of farmland owned and operated by the Laity family. Enjoy hay rides, barn animal visits, a corn maze and more. #laitypumpkinpatch
Bruce’s Country Market: A Salmon Tradition: Apple Fest, October 5 & 6, is an opportunity to sample and buy a variety of heirloom and organic apples. It’s a fun celebration with hundreds of apples under a huge tent and prizes for identifying apple varieties. Another popular tradition is the Giant Pumpkin Contest.

Our community has deep-rooted agricultural traditions and with an abundance of pumpkins, garlic, blueberries and other bounty, we are delighted to invite visitors and citizens into the farms and eateries for a taste of Maple Ridge country living. #discovermapleridge
