This event is canceled for the 2021 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Fall Harvest Festival celebrates everything that makes Applewood special: A place where family and friends can enjoy nature’s beauty, have fun, learn about history, eat locally grown food, acquire a new skill, and experience the enduring legacy of C.S. and Ruth Mott.

Sensory Note: This is a large-scale event that can have more than 1,000 participants over the course of the day. This program may include live performances with amplification, farm animals (and their smells and sounds), and longer lines or wait times for some activities. For more information on accessibility, visit this page.

All activities must align with the program theme and desired outcomes. For details, please contact the Education Coordinator at 810-396-3112.
