Fall Apple Festivals

If it’s true an apple a day will keep the doctor away, what will a whole bushel do? Find out at one of the many marvelous apple festivals around the country where picking apples by the bushel is just one of the attractions.

Celebrating the longtime American tradition of apple harvest can take numerous forms and suit all kinds of interests. If apple pie is your passion, get in on the taste testing for the best one around or find out how to submit your own for that coveted blue ribbon. If cider – both hard and soft – is your draw, there will surely be a variety to sample.

From hayrides, to apple bobbing, to crafting there is always an activity to keep everyone amused from toddlers to grandparents so be sure to bring the whole family along. Some towns will even combine their apple festival with other interests like antique car shows or auctions so check out the websites before you embark.
