Apple Harvest Festival

The Office of Family Resources will no longer be organizing the Apple Harvest Festival; last year was our final festival.

Thank you past vendors, organizations and artists for your participation at The Apple Harvest Festival over the years. Your support has been critical to our success in helping families at the Amherst Family Center program.

It has been wonderful working with you. Good luck at other fall festivals!

The Apple Harvest Festival is a re-creation of an old-fashioned New England community fair, coupled with the presentation and sale of beautiful art and fine crafts. The festival is the largest fund-raising event of the year for the Amherst Family Center (AFC).

Vendor Information

The Apple Harvest and Crafts Festival is open to any artist or craftsperson working in the United States. The jury is comprised of members of the Festival committee. A limited number of non-craft exhibitors will be allowed but these exhibits must not resemble artisan-produced work.

Commercially manufactured items, imports, and other items from commercially sold kits will not be accepted.

Food vendors must obtain a food permit.
For further information see Vendor Application.

Apple Harvest Sponsors

The Amherst Family Center (AFC) thanks all Festival sponsors for their support!
