Harrison Beer and Oktoberfest
We have officially started counting down to one of the most loved events in Harrison the 4th Annual Harrison Beerfest and Oktoberfest. The Harrison Beer Festival was created to showase BC Craft Breweries and celebrate craft beer month in BC.
The Harrison Hot Springs and Agassiz region has a rich history in the beer industry. For 60 years hops, a basic ingredient in beer, where the main industry in the Agassiz Area of British Columbia. At the height of the business, 300 acres were planted with hops. The first hop yards, planted in 1892, belonged to the B.C. Hop Company. Hops were harvested from August to early October every year and during that time Agassiz prospered. With the arrival of a thousand pickers, the town's normal population swelled to 15 hundred and business flourished until the flood of 48.
The Harrison Beer Fest offers three great events over 2 days. The Festival kicks off on Friday night with a traditional cask night. Set in a British Pub atmosphere 8 local brewers bring their best unique brew in a cask that must be finished in one night. A cask is unfiltered, unpasteurized beer served wtih out CO2. It a unique beer and this friendly competition is a great opportunity to try out some of this special beverage. Its a great night with British style decor and British themed buffet.
The Saturday afternoon, Beer Festival brings 25 of the finest micro breweries in BC (and two from Ontario) to the shores of Harrison Lake for a unique opportunity of sampling or tasting a wide range of craft-brewed beers in a variety of different styles by various brewers. Each brewery brings with them 3-4 different selections of their beer. Drink tokens are required for each sample.
While the Harrison Beer Festival is smaller and newer our focus on quality brewers and friendly fun atmosphere has gained us a loyal following. For more info or to buy tickets go to More info: www.harrisonbeerfest.com

Harrison Hot Springs Lakefront Car Show August 15
Some of us have a love that we unashamedly lavish attention on both in private and in public. We take the time, without being reminded, to nourish the relationship. To keep our love in perfect repair so that it doesn’t crumble away in tiny increments that would soon become small holes and then gather speed and become even larger holes, that soon become costly and difficult to repair.
We are careful and respectful and considerate.
Our hands are gentle and our thoughts are forward thinking to how we can best maintain the beauty and integrity of our love.
the feel of umblemished steel & aluminum
the admiration of a perfect back end
the jewel-like tones of her color
the perfect symmetry of her grill
the soft, lush feel of perfectly worn leather
the strength hidden beneath her hood
the ability she allows us to harness that strength
the sweet sound of her voice
and the knowledge that she is mine
Come out August 15th and enjoy a day strolling through cars from all eras, with the backdrop of the beautiful village and lake of Harrison Hot Springs.

Sasquatch Days 2015
We hope you will join us on the 27th and 28th of June as the joint hosts for Sasquatch Days, Sts’ailes First Nations and the Village of Harrison Hot Springs, invite visitors to this unique event that brings two communities together in an opportunity to learn about the traditions of the Sts’ailes people and share cultural experiences.
North of Highway 7, running along the west side of the Harrison River, lays the village of Sts'ailes, whose traditional territory includes Harrison Hot Springs and Harrison Lake and includes the watersheds of Harrison Lake and River, Chehalis River and the Fraser River. The name Sts'ailes, meaning the Beating Heart, comes from halfway up the west side of Harrison Lake. In this area, Xals, the Transformer, battled a once-powerful shaman called the Doctor and turned him to stone.
In an effort to preserve and limit him, Xals broke apart pieces of his body and spread them throughout the territory, creating landmarks. Where his heart landed became known as the village of Sts'ailes. The usual English name Chehalis is identical to that of the much more numerous Chehalis people of southern Puget Sound in Washington. By Sts'ailes tradition, the southern Chehalis were separated from their homeland as a consequence of the Great Flood. Fish and seashell fossils found in abundance near Mystery Creek (cited as one of the meeting places of Sasquatch) deep in Sts'ailes territory, seems to support this Native American Hypothesis. Culture in Sts'ailes runs very strong. They take great pride in what they do and how they carry themselves particularly through their ceremonies and in their spirituality. They "live" the culture.
This intercultural celebration includes canoe races, traditional salmon barbeque, medicine walks, cultural boat tours, arts & craft activities, games, entertainment and most importantly talks on the Sasquatch from Sts’ailes experts and local Harrison Hot Springs Sasquatch investigators.
This two-day event will begin at 9:30 am Saturday June 27th with a short procession from the Memorial Hall to Harrison Lake Plaza where a welcoming ceremony will be held at 10:00. Each day will feature artisan activity tables, medicine walks and opportunities for intercultural sharing. Saturday morning the main event starts as war canoes gather for a friendly competition that will continue with final races on Sunday. Of course, no canoe race is complete without a traditional salmon barbeque that will take place Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
Keep your eyes peeled for Sasquatch...there's nothing they like better than Salmon and Bannock!
