 2011 Virginia Apple Festivals & Events

More than just great taste, apples represent big business in Virginia; the state ranks sixth in the nation in apple production. Approximately $30 million will be added to the state’s economy this year through the sale of fresh market apples and products such as applesauce, processed apple slices, apple butter, apple juice and cider.

In addition, there are the tourism dollars, generated by the many regional apple festivals. This year, festival-goers can choose from a variety of events which feature apple sales, taste samples and apple-related foods and crafts. Festivals often offer music, square dancing or line dancing, folklore and demonstrations as well. They can also be an excellent way to stock up on locally-grown and produced agricultural products such as wine, pumpkins, ornamental gourds, Indian corn, jams, jellies or fall vegetables.
