Take a bite into fall with the UBC Apple Festival this October! On Saturday, October 14th and Sunday, October 15th, 2017, between the hours of 11:00 am and 4:00 pm, you can sink your teeth into everything apple related at the UBC Botanical Gardens on the west side of the university campus.
Some 63 types of apples are lined up, with 70 varieties of trees for purchase. While a list of cultivars for this year won’t be posted until October, some of the ones served up last year included Ambrosia, Bramley’s Seedling, Cox’s Orange Pippin, Grimes Golden, and Salish.
In addition to the apple sales, this family-friendly event will include an apple tasting, food stalls, a kids play area, crafts, live music and entertainment. Plus, the gardens are open for exploration, with special pricing for the Greenheart TreeWalk.
Admission is $5 (cash only), or free for those aged 12 and under, which gets you access to the event and the botanical gardens. There is no parking at the gardens, but shuttle buses will run every 15 minutes between the Botanical Gardens and the West Parkade and the Fraser River Parkade on campus.
