Apple Harvest Festival is a great introduction to the rich farm and artist community of Ithaca.

Apple Harvest Festival is the best way to celebrate the harvest season in upstate New York!

Over 100 vendors will be selling unique apple varieties, hot apple cider donuts, kettle corn, local farm fresh baked goods and a multitude of around the world specialties. Local farmers are on site selling everything from tasty apple beverages to local pumpkins and of course, apples, apples, and more apples. Wineries and cideries have regional beverages available for tasting and purchase.
