It’s going to be an awesome summer in Harrison Hot Springs, From events, festivals, self-guided tours, and so much more, you’ll be left with the question of where to start! Upload this post into your calendar and pace yourself for weekends of fun!
A celebration of past and present, this tour is a rich mix of wonderful things to see, do, smell, and taste! See cows roaming the fields, watch artisan cheese and hand-crafted pottery in the making. Take a self-guided tour of a 1920’s living history historic site, explore a garden and shop for antiques and home & garden décor. Smell fresh coffee being roasted and taste homemade dishes with locally-sourced products, heirloom tomatoes, garlic, corn, cheese, raspberries, blueberries, and fresh veggies. Don’t forget about the Harrison River Select salmon treats!
Here is a sample of what you can find year-round!
|NOTHING CORNY ABOUT IT|
As of August (as soon as it’s ready), you must try Sparkes Corn Barn for sweet corn!
How far can you go without a refuel? Stop by Back Porch Coffee for coffee, antiques, pottery, and more!
River Select Salmon is carefully harvested with the future in mind so that we can enjoy for many seasons!
|PEDAL …THEN POOL|
Stay and soak in one of the hot spring pools or enjoy the healing springs spa.
Tourism Harrison, Prospera Credit Union, and our farmers welcome you to another year of exploring the countryside. The Agassiz Farms Cycle Tour is a leisurely, one-day self-guided cycle tour, centred around a 30-km flat route.
Bags too heavy for biking? A shuttle service has been provided, which will collect your purchases and bring them back to the registration area for pick-up. We encourage a stop and shop at the many local artisan booths along the way. That’s right, we are talking Christmas shopping in July!
Stop by UBC’S Dairy Education and Research Centre and find out why cows can thrive eating forages, whereas humans cannot? Do they prefer to live indoors or outdoors? So many great questions, to be answered.
Follow on Facebook for updated announcements.
