The National Apple Harvest Festival, Biglerville, Pennsylvania: October 6-7 and 13-14, 2018
The National Apple Harvest Festival, held during the first two full weekends in October, celebrates beautiful crafts, great music and wonderful food for over 50 years and counting. The festival has something for everyone with hundreds of arts and crafts dealers, demonstrations, contests, food stands and entertainment. The festival is located in the heart of Pennsylvania Apple country, just a few miles from historic Gettysburg and is within a two hour drive of Washington D.C., Baltimore MD and Harrisburg PA. The National Apple Harvest Festival is located in scenic Adams County, in South Central Pennsylvania. The festival is held outdoors annually at the South Mountain Fairgrounds in Arendtsville, located just 10 miles northwest of Gettysburg. Special attractions include the Apple Auditorium and antique cars, steam engine displays, orchard tours, petting zoo, craftsman demonstrations, and appearances by the Pennsylvania Apple Queen, all included in your one-price admission.
One of the main questions asked about our festival is "where does the money go?". All proceeds, (with the exception of 11% kept in reserve for emergencies & start-up for the next year's festival), from the National Apple Harvest Festival go back into the community & to other local, state & national charitable organizations with the bulk staying local. 49% goes toward funding Oakside Community Park, a 92 acre park located in Biglerville, PA, owned by the Upper Adams Jaycees. The park is open to the public. 20% goes to the Upper Adams Jaycees, sponsor of the festival to fund their many community projects such as a community Easter Egg Hunt, movie nights in the park, food boxes & gifts to less fortunate families at Christmas, Special Olympics volleyball, a fish rodeo, along with donations to organizations & families in need. The remaining 20% is donated to civic, school, church, scouting organizations, fire companies, & others. The pie chart shows our breakdown. So when you visit our festival, you are supporting numerous organizations & groups, too many to individually list. The National Apple Harvest Festival is located at the South Mountain Fairgrounds and is held outdoors rain or shine!
