PRESSFEST 2018

Save the date!

This epic annual community juicing event returns to Slocan Park Hall this September 30 for a SUNDAY-FUN-DAY¬† you don’t want to miss. Last year over 500 people came out to take in all the events of the day, expect bigger and better offerings this year! Community Fun Day will include: LIVE MUSIC – FOOD – BORSCHT – VENDORS – KIDS ACTIVITIES¬† + COMMUNITY JUICE PRESSING SERVICE!

GOT FRUIT TREES? MAKE JUICE!

Community members can bring their own handpicked (not windfall) Apples and Pears to be pressed by the Kootenay Mobile Juice Press to have your own fruit turned into shelf stable bag-in-box totes of amazing fresh cider. You pay nominal per liter fee for the service, put your fruit to use without having to spend the day making your own sticky mess and then needing to can or freeze all your juice! Consider this a juicy delicious easy button service we are offering to our apple rich community.

THIS YEAR WE ARE EXTENDING OUR PRESSING SERVICE INTO A 2 DAY EVENT…

In an effort to speed up juice pick up times we are hosting 2 days of juicing (but only 1 day of event festivities), we aim to process all large volume producers the day before the big community event to allow for quicker turn around of smaller batches based on the success of last year.

BIG BATCH PRESSING ONLY – SATURDAY

If you are a large homestead / community group / school or farm you can come a day early to the large volume pressing on Saturday September 29th (If you have more than a full size pick up truck load of apples and pears then plan to come on Saturday for quicker service).

COMMUNITY PRESSING ON SUNDAY- FUN-DAY + FALL EVENT FESTIVITIES

Everyone is welcome to come on out and enjoy the day, the music the food the kids activities AND bring your own fruit to press, as little or as much as you have a box of fruit or a truckload, lets juice it!
