We first discovered the Bala Cranberry Festival back in 2009 and we’ve been going ever since. This is the festival that put Bala on the map!  It’s always exciting and a real treat to check out all the festivities.  The Bala Cranberry Festival is truly a Muskoka tradition loved by all who experience it! We eagerly anticipate this festival every year!  We look forward to meeting some great new people and reconnecting with old friends.  You’ll find us inside the community centre where it’s nice and toasty warm.  Make sure you come by for special show pricing and enter our contest for your chance to win some fantastic Bee By The Sea products!
