Every October, on the first two weekends, a celebration of the glorious apple occurs near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

The National Apple Harvest is held at the South Mountain Fairgrounds in Arendtsville, PA; about 10 miles northwest of Gettysburg, PA.

With its beginnings in the 50′s as the Apple Blossom Sunday, the official National Apple Harvest debuted in October of 1965. ┬áThe festival expanded to two weekends in 1975.

Now the festival brings in thousands of people to cruise the fairgrounds and over 300 vendors selling food items, apple based crafts, an apple pie auction for charity and entertainment.

In recent years the festival has expanded to cover more than just entertainment based on apples, including square dancing, chainsaw carving and other displays.

    I don’t think I have ever seen as many apple creations and crafts as I have seen at the apple festival. However, there is a lot more than I expected of other entertainment. Don’t plan to peek around and get out quick. We enjoyed ourselves for quite a bit longer than we expected.
