Experience the magic of autumn in Northern Michigan at the Annual Charlevoix Apple Fest taking place on Friday, Saturday & Sunday, October 11 - 13, 2013. This 3-day event, sponsored by the Charlevoix Area Chamber of Commerce, 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, pies and cider.
Still hungry? Local organizations will warm you up with hot food items such as chili, hot dogs, apple flappers, kielbasa, French fries and more.
Activities include a holiday art & craft show with 125 exhibitor booths, face painting, pony rides, petting zoo and pumpkin carving contest display.
Don’t forget to stop at the Chamber booth and pick up your Apple Fest t-shirt. Adult sizes available at $20 each.
So, bundle up and bring the family to our fall harvest bonanza! Join the festivities and show your support for our orchards, farmers and organizations while celebrating the season in scenic downtown Charlevoix this October. The Harvest is in!
