Linvilla Orchards Apple Festival honors apples every autumn. This legendary festival could not properly be celebrated in just one day! This two day event is hosted by Makin’ Music. Pick Your Own Apples are during the height of their season and you can choose from the many varieties grown right here at Linvilla. You won’t want to miss our Apple Pie Eating Contest for bushels of fun!
Our Pumpkinland Harvest Festival will also be in full swing, bring your whole family for a fun-filled day! Experience costumed characters, games & contests and live music.
Pick Your Own Apples & other fresh fruits and vegetables begins at 8:00 am!
Were you aware of the many delicious varieties of Apples and their uses? We are having Apple tasting ALL DAY for you to find that perfect apple, whether it be sweet or tart.
Bring your questions, because we will have the answers you need!
Some apples are tart and some are sweet. Some make good Pies and others tasty Treats! Our staff will be in front of Linvilla’s Farm Market to let you taste our many varieties and show you the several things you can do with apples all fall.

We will also be introducing one of our new games into the mix – The Donut Eating Game
This game is more for our younger guests. We will tie one of Linvilla’s famous Donuts to one end of a piece of ribbon. The other end of the ribbon will be tied to a clothes line, the length of our stage. Each heat will have about 8 donuts hanging from the clothes line. The goal is to be the first contestant to eat the donut that is dangling in front of your face. The catch? You cannot use your hands! Each heat will be divided by age, just like the Pie Eating Contest. f
