Cherry Fiesta July 1

Cherry Fiesta

Half the fun is eating the cherry, the other is seeing how far it’s pit can be spit at Osoyoos’ Annual Cherry Fiesta that is held in July. Each Canada Day, the town’s downtown parks come alive with events such as a pancake breakfast, children’s games, a pie eating competition, and more. The fiesta celebrates the kick-off to cherry harvest and also crowns a new Miss Osoyoos. An evening fireworks display caps-off the day and can be viewed from the Anarchist Mountain Lookout, Haynes Point Provincial Park and other locations along the Lake Osoyoos lakeshore.
