One of North Seattle’s best fall festivals is coming up this weekend, with the Festival of Fruit happening at Carkeek Park on Saturday, Oct. 5.
The 13th annual festival takes place at Piper’s Creek Orchard, and includes orchard tours, activities for kids, live music, a mason bee display, and all things apples. There will be apple juice pressing, variety identification, heritage apple testing, apple tree planting and orchard care demos. And for the especially keen, a master gardener clinic.
Friends of Piper’s Orchard organizes the event each year, which helps raise money and awareness of the century-old orchard in Carkeek Park.
The festival is free and will happen from 11am to 2pm at Piper’s Creek Orchard ((950 NW Carkeek Park Road).
