Every year in May, tucked away in the Fruit Belt of Adams County fruit growers prepare for the annual Apple Blossom Festival. The Adams County Fruit Growers Association has been hosting this festival for 57 years now and it is a wonderful family event.
This is a great opportunity for Kuhn Orchards customers to come to our “neck of the woods” and see where your favorite fruits and veggies are grown. We live in the spectacular South Mountain Range which is ideal for growing apples, peaches and more. All along the hillside, you can see orchards for miles, and it is breathtaking. We hope you will take some time out of your busy schedule, and come north to Pennsylvania to attend the Apple Blossom Festival!
The Apple Blossom Festival is located at the South Mountain Fairgrounds north of Gettysburg. The Festival is Saturday and Sunday May 5th & 6th from 9am until 5pm. There is ample free parking, admission is $5 for adults, children under 12 are free. Details for the Apple Blossom Festival are at www.appleblossomfestival.info.
The schedule for the weekend is packed! There will be band performances, a Crunch Quest scavenger hunt for the kids, puppet shows and magic shows, Orchard Bus Tours with Fruit Growers as your hosts, all sorts of fair food, the Coronation of the 2012 Pennsylvania Apple Queen, and much much more. It is sure to be a spring time event you and your family will look forward to year after year!
Of course, since May 5th and 6th is also the FIRST WEEKEND OF MARKETS, we still want to see you at your regular Saturday and Sunday Farmers Markets!! So if you shop with us on Saturday, make plans to come to the Apple Blossom Festival on Sunday, and vis-a-versa if you are a Sunday shopper!
