Apple Fest in Charlevoix

October 11th-13th, 2024

What began more than 20 years ago as a way to celebrate fall has turned into an annual event of the apple in Charlevoix: Apple Fest. Held each year on the second weekend of October, Apple Fest turns downtown Charlevoix into a festive and fun place to be.

Dozens of Northern Michigan orchards are represented at Apple Fest and they bring more than 30 varieties of traditional and heirloom apples along with cider, baked goods, apple butter, and other fall produce like pumpkins and squash. The accompanying art and craft show with 125 exhibitors brings craftspeople to Charlevoix to show their talent. And all of this takes place in downtown Charlevoix in East Park on the Round Lake waterfront–a gorgeous setting!
