RETURNING AUTUMN 2018


Vancouver’s largest Volksfest returns next autumn for its fifth and largest year yet!

Held under the Festzelte next to BC Place in 2017, Harvest Haus brings folklore from the 1st century to the Great White North.

Combining modern fare with authentic European harvest traditions, gather your closest mates for the most gluttonous and gratifying weekends of the year.

The crunch of fresh produce, crackle of the grill, the fizz of the pour, the bite of the chopping block and the clinking of the glassware. Applause. Laughter. Conversation. Music. The sounds of autumn! PROST!

2017 LOCATION

88 Pacific Blvd, Vancouver
Sole Food Street Farms

The Halle makes a move! After 3 incredible years at Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza, we outgrew our original location and built our expanded Mini Munich next to Sole Food Street Farms adjacent to BC Place at 88 Pacific Blvd. The brand new Harvest Haus Halle sat 500 more revellers per sitting, bringing our total to 1500.

2017 ENTERTAINMENT

Back by popular demand, we welcomed back Vancouver’s very own traditional Oom-pah Band The Oktoberators for both weekends of fun!

Additionally, direct from Germany and back for his fourth year running, DJ Erick Decks span tracks throughout each sitting. Listen to his Das Teaser Soundtrack here.
