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.
This fall harvest celebration includes activities for the entire family. You won't want to miss the holiday art & craft show in East Park featuring 125 exhibitor booths. Head one block north to Bridge Park for the children's activities including face painting by the Charlevoix High School Art and Performing Arts Departments, pony rides by Liberty Valley Ranch, and a petting zoo hosted by the Charlevoix County 4-H.
Location: Charlevoix Waterfront
Time: Friday & Saturday - 10am - 6pm, Sunday - 10am - 4pm
