Virtual Cranberry Festival Sale!

Join us for our very first VIRTUAL CRANBERRY FESTIVAL SALE! That’s right, with the unfortunate cancellation of the annual event this year in Bala, we wanted to keep the tradition alive with our own Online Shopping Sale!


Fall in Muskoka is probably best known for two things. Firstly, the stunning display of Fall colours as the leaves change draws visitors from all over Ontario, across the country and even from around the world. Whether viewing the colours while hiking, cycling or boating, the breath-taking views are some of the best in the world. Secondly, Fall in Muskoka is known for the Bala Cranberry Festival – one of our favourite events each year! Offering visitors the opportunity to literally ‘take the plunge’ and walk waist-deep in the cranberry marsh, the event also serves up a wide variety of cranberry culinary creations – both sweet & savory – along with live music, games, shopping and more.

As amazing as the event itself is, it is actually much more than that. Despite being hosted within a small town with a population around 700, the event has drawn over half a million visitors since its inaugural year in 1984. The event has generated over $500,000 in funds raised that have been dispersed as community funding & scholarships; has featured over 125 local musicians; has supported hundreds of local community groups and non-profit associations; and has even been included as one of Ontario’s Top 100 Festivals & Event.

Traditionally, we’d be loading up the van and gearing up for an exciting weekend at the Cranberry Festival, but unfortunately the organizers of the event had to make the difficult, albeit socially responsible decision to cancel the event this year due to Covid-19. With that said, we want to keep that tradition alive and show our love for the Cranberry Season by launching our first-ever VIRTUAL CRANBERRY FESTIVAL SALE!

In addition to hosting our Virtual Cranberry Festival Sale, we also want to spread the word about a fundraising initiative that has been launched by the organizers of the Cranberry Festival in order to raise funds for next year’s event. They have created a 2020 Collector’s Edition Button to commemorate the ‘festival that never was’.

The buttons are available for a $5 donation and can be purchased through the Cranberry Festival website here.


We hope you’re able to take advantage of our Virtual Cranberry Festival Sale event and we look forward to hopefully seeing you in-person at next year’s event!
