What to know
Linvilla Orchards’ Apple Festival honors apples every autumn. This legendary festival could not properly be celebrated in just one day! This event is scheduled when Pick Your Own apples are most commonly at 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!
Pumpkinland 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!
Our host for the Apple Festival will be the one and only Silly Joe! He has planned music, fun and games for kids of all ages! Our day will start off at 11AM with a performance by Puppets Pizzazz. For over 31 years the troupe from Puppets Pizzazz have been entertaining young audiences with songs and skits. There will be two performances by Puppets Pizzazz at the Apple Festival - 11AM and again at 12:15PM.
Paul Downie and Friends will be performing their diverse repertoire at 1:45PM and again at 3:00PM. Self described as "Rhythm and Soul," this band performs an eclectic variety including music from Neville Brothers and Bob Marley to twists on jazz greats like Miles Davis and Sonny Rollins! This band is not to be missed!
Of course, our dear friend and Festival fixture, Officer Offbeat will be bringing joy and laughter throughout the day as he wanders the farm grounds.
