2023 marks the 49th year running that Applecrest has invited our community to celebrate and share in the harvest. Our Festivals offer a break from the tangle of everyday living with pure and simple, honest-to-goodness family fun. They're a time when moms and dads, grandparents and grandchildren, sisters and brothers, and kids of all ages can reconnect with each other and with the land to make memories that last a lifetime. So, grab the gang and come visit us at Applecrest where, as always, admission and parking are FREE. See you at the farm!

Summer marks the beginning of our Festivals and Celebrations of all things fruit, from sun-ripened strawberries to plump blueberries and the juiciest of peaches; our Fall Festivals launch on the first weekend in September and run from 11:00am to 5:00pm both Saturday and Sunday, every weekend, through the end of October.

Please note: Dogs are allowed over most areas of the Applecrest Farm property but are NOT permitted in any picking areas except our apple orchards, where well behaved dogs are allowed.
