Fall Festival FAQ
Our traditional Fall Festival will not take place this year. But don’t worry- we have a plan to spread out the fun! Some elements of Fall Festival will remain on their traditional weekend, while others will move to different weekends. The second weekend in October will include live music from the Fiddlers as well as pie, homemade ice cream, pony rides, and grilling. We’ll also have pumpkins, hayrides, and hours of enjoyment in Apple Acres.
There is something to do at Deal’s Orchard anytime you visit this fall!
We celebrate the harvest every year with our annual Fall Festival. Fall Festival began in 1982 as an open house to thank our customers. Over the past 35+ years it’s grown to its present size and we now have thousands of people come visit from all over the state. Fall Festival is always held the second full weekend in October. We have live entertainment, feature many activities and attractions, have the Kiwanis Club out grilling, and serve fresh baked homemade apple pies and dumplings. Many people make it a family tradition to come every year to our Fall Festival. We hope you’ll mark your calendar and come on by this year!
