Apple Harvest Festival

This year's Festival will be our best yet as we have a new community partner Valley Kids!

Join us on Saturday, September 16, 2017 from 10-4 on the Amherst Town Common for our annual Apple Harvest, Craft, & Children's Festival, featuring artisan crafts from juried crafters including jewelry, painting, pottery, toys, quilts, textiles, photos, glass, wool, silk and more--along with delicious local food, a petting zoo, pony rides, children's games, and local pre-schools offering information and activities.

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 OFR's Amherst Family Center program.
