About

 

A hop farmer, a grape grower, a hay farmer, and a fish biologist walked into a bar... and the rest was history.

From its humble beginning in 2009, the Lillooet Hop and Grape Society, will be hosting its 8th Annual Harvest Festival on September 8, 2018. With the hyper local in mind, this festival will showcase the best of Lillooet's agriculture, whether it be a hoppy IPA, an award-winning Riesling, or a pasture-raised pig roast.  

A hop farmer, a grape grower, a hay farmer, and a fish biologist walked into a Lillooet bar. A few beers later, a seed of an idea was planted to host our very own harvest festival.
