Fall in Ithaca: A Time for Apples

Written by Courtney Clemente

Nothing says fall in Ithaca like the annual Apple Harvest Festival. With music, food, dancing, a Ferris wheel, street performers, and an abundance of apples, Apple Fest is one of Ithaca's definitive charms. Roughly 30,000 people headed to the Ithaca Commons for the 26th annual event.

See a time-lapse video of last year's festival shot by the Commons Cam:

Although the weather forecast looked a little bleak, the sun was shining on Saturday as over 150 individual performers played music and danced. IC's male and female a cappella groups, Ithacappella and Premium Blend, gave energizing performances on Saturday morning. Later that day, attendees were able to watch an apple pie-eating competition as they enjoyed their apple treats.

Apple Fest is a chance for local farmers, wineries, bakeries, craft makers, and food vendors to showcase their work. It brings the community together for a weekend full of food, music, and apples. It was clear that this year was another successful Apple Fest.
