Old Apple Tree Festival
Saturday, October 7, 2023
11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Old Apple Tree Park
Celebrate the Old Apple Tree Festival from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the first Saturday of October at Old Apple Tree Park, located on Columbia Way just east of Interstate 5 Bridge.
The annual Old Apple Tree Festival is a celebration centered on the oldest living apple tree in the Northwest, planted at Fort Vancouver in 1826.
Providing family fun, food, music, and history of Vancouver’s Old Apple Tree, the festival celebrates our community and its rich heritage. Throughout the day Urban Forestry Commissioners give away cuttings from the Old Apple Tree; cuttings are limited and will be given out until they are gone.
This is a free, family friendly event with activities for children, food for sale, apple tastings and sales, live music, cider pressing and walking tours of Fort Vancouver Village and the Land Bridge.
The festival features community apple cider pressing. Bring your own apples and a clean container to catch your fresh cider. Approximately 12 lbs of apples will make a quart of cider. Volunteers needed for the cider pressing station, contact Urban Forestry to learn more.
Local musical groups will provide live music throughout the day. Check out your favorite artists: The Ottomatics at 11 a.m., River Twain at 12:30 p.m., and JT Wise Band at 2 p.m.
