Family Enjoying The Ruthven Apple Festival

Celebrate the 40th Annual Ruthven Apple Festival at Colasanti’s Tropical Gardens on September 28 & 29, 2019. This is a great community event for the entire family, filled with fun, food, crafts, entertainment and a classic car show on Sunday.

The Ruthven Apple Festival has something for everyone!

As in past, the festival begins early on Saturday morning with an 8:00am breakfast made with country fresh eggs, bacon, home fries and coffee. Opening ceremonies begin at 11am at the main stage with an apple peeling contest and welcoming from area dignitaries.

Bring the entire family and enjoy two spectacular fun filled days that will include weekend long musical entertainment, a host of rides and games for children, the Apple Festival Car Show, over 100 craft and food vendors and the popular Farmers Market filled with all the bounty of Essex County.

FREE Admission and FREE Parking

Festival hours are 9am-6pm Saturday and 9am-5pm Sunday.

Thanks to the support of the local community, the festival has raised nearly $1 Million to date for Community Living Essex County in support of people with an intellectual disability.
