A family event for all ages, the UBC Apple Festival celebrates one of BC’s favourite fruits. From learning about the diversity of apples to tasting rare and unusual varieties, the Apple Festival is a great opportunity to discover more about this delicious fruit. Thousands of pounds of apples will be sold to thousands of hungry attendees. Over 60 varieties of heritage, new and “tried and true” varieties are available, grown both conventionally and organically. Varieties of apple trees grafted onto dwarfing root stock are also for sale, perfect for the home garden or patio. One of the most popular activities at the Apple Festival is the Apple Tasting tent. Kids can engage in a number of activities in the Children’s Area, ranging from face painting and games to storytelling. A variety of talented entertainers keep the family amused, including family-friendly shows on the Main Stage. This fundraising event, organized by the Friends of the Garden, supports UBC Botanical Garden.
