Steeped in global traditions, the inaugural Vancouver Harvest Haus joins together camaraderie, authentic European harvest traditions and theatricality with a simple goal: merriment to all. Inspired by Oktoberfest, driven by a love for local ingredients and good drink, this event immerses attendees in an interactive story of the harvest, from ancient days to modern times. And it all takes place under a big top tent.

Located right downtown Vancouver on the Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza, the Harvest Haus Halle seats up to 1,000 revelers. Choose from one of six sittings to celebrate the season, the fruits of the fields and the drinks of autumn.
