Keremeos

Keremeos (pop. 1290) is the Similkameen’s second largest town, located at the crossroads of BC Highway 3 and 3A. It’s a 45-minute drive east from Princeton, 40 minutes west from Penticton and 35 minutes northwest of Osoyoos. Keremeos is an agricultural community framed by the Similkameen River, mountains, endless orchards, vineyards and farms. It’s known far and wide as the Fruit Stand Capital of Canada.  Keremeos is a community that is home to many of the Similkameen’s wineries as well as the historic Grist Mill and Gardens, the last of its kind in Western Canada. Many a visitor to this area makes a stop at one or more of fruit stands before heading back home. It’s here that you’ll find the freshest Similkameen-grown produce at seasonal fruit stands and markets. Once you’ve done exploring, get out your inflated inner tube, head over to the Red Bridge, hop in the river and float your way to Pine Park, in Keremeos.
