On Saturday, September 24th the Friends of Piper’s Orchard will be hosting the 10th Annual Festival of Fruit from 10 am to 2 pm at the Environmental Center in Carkeek Park.
The apple orchard was originally planted in the 1890s on land that eventually became part of one of Seattle’s most popular parks. Friends of Piper’s Orchard is a group of volunteers who rescued the orchard from invasive plants and work to preserve the health of the orchard so it will last for many years to come.
The festival is free to the public and activities will include an apple pie contest, cider pressing, live music, and orchard tours. See this Parkways post for full details.
