Cherry Fair looking for vendors, exhibitors and entertainers

The Kelowna Cherry Fair is finally coming home.

The Kelowna Cherry Fair is finally coming home.

After being held the last two years at another location, the annual Cherry Fair returns to the renovated Laurel Packinghouse and B.C. Orchard Industry Museum on Saturday, July 23, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The host orchard industry museum is now relying on community partners to ensure that this fair is successful.

So the call has gone out for vendors, exhibitors, and entertainers to participate in the fair this year.

This year will prove to be one of the most difficult yet to find cherries to share with the public, according to organizers.

If a local cherry grower is able to donate 20 pounds of cherries to the festival’s tasting table, plese contact Jacqueline Salvino at 250-763-2417 or email events@KelownaMuseums.ca.

Each year the Cherry Fair draws more than 1,000 visitors to participate in the fun, family event which features cherry tastings and sales, children’s activities and entertainment.

It celebrates the cherry industry and the rich agricultural heritage of the Okanagan.
