Providing family fun, food and history of Vancouver's Old Apple Tree, the festival celebrates our community's legacy. 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, fruit tree pruning workshops, food, live music, and walking tours of Fort Vancouver. Fort Vancouver Antique Equipment Association will be on hand with rope making and corn grinding activities.
This year the festival will once again feature a 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.
