Experience the magic of autumn in Northern Michigan at the 34th Annual Apple Festival & Craft Show. This 3-day event is held yearly to honor local orchards and growers who, in the spirit of the season, line Bridge Street to bring the fall harvest to you. The festival’s focal point is the apple, proven to be the most popular fruit in North America. Northern Michigan’s cool temperatures are said to produce tastier and more colorful fruit than those grown in warmer climates. More than 30 types of apples will be on hand as well as other fall harvest items such as pumpkins, squash, jam, honey, maple syrup, and cider. Still hungry? Local organizations will warm you up with hot food items such as chili, hot dogs, kielbasa, pasties and more! Activities include a holiday art & craft show with 125 exhibitor booths, face painting, pony rides, a petting zoo and pumpkin carving contest. So, bundle up and bring the family to our fall harvest bonanza! Join the festivities and show your support for our local agricultural community while celebrating the season in scenic downtown Charlevoix this October. The Harvest is in!
