Join us for the 69th Annual Cherry Fiesta, while we celebrate Canada’s 150th.
This annual double celebration, July 1st and cherries being the first harvest of the year, originated in 1948 when Osoyoos was a small village. In 1949, representatives of the Gyro Club realized that one club could not handle and succeed in staging a worthwhile community day, called together the Kiwanis, Legion, Board of Trade, Junior Chamber of Commerce and the Board of Commissioners to discuss pooling resources. Names proposed were Cherry Festival and Cherry Carnival. Cherry Carnival won out. (later changed to the Cherry Fiesta to reflect the Town’s Spanish theme).
