Temperatures may be dropping, but we can’t help looking forward to the Fall season ahead. There’s nothing more beautiful than when the leaves change colour and paint the city shades of red, orange and yellow. If you just want to cozy up on the couch, our suites are perfect for that. But when it’s time to step outside and enjoy the crisp autumn air, check out these Fall activities happening in Vancouver.
You don’t have to travel to Germany to attend Oktoberfest. Vancouver’s Harvest Haus is back for its fourth year in Vancouver, expanding to a bigger location next to Sole Food Street Farms.
The nine day Bavarian party will feature seven dinner settings and a full lineup of European harvest traditions. From axe-throwing and Stein Games to lipsynching and dancing, Harvest Haus always puts on an entertaining event. The best part? All attendees get to indulge at authentic European food stalls – think Bratwurst. Prost to that!
