The annual Old Apple Tree Festival is a celebration centered on the oldest living apple tree in the Northwest, planted at Fort Vancouver in 1826.
Celebrate the Old Apple Tree Festival from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the first Saturday of October at Old Apple Tree Park, located on Columbia Way just east of Interstate 5 Bridge.
Providing family fun, food, music, and history of Vancouver's Old Apple Tree, the festival celebrates our community and it's rich heritage. Throughout the day Urban Forestry Commissioners give away cuttings from the Old Apple Tree; cuttings are limited and will be given out until they are gone.
This is a free, family friendly event with activities for children, food, live music, cider pressing and walking tours of Fort Vancouver Village and the Land Bridge.
The festival features a community apple cider pressing hosted by Urban Abundance. Bring your own apples and a clean container to catch your fresh cider. Approximately 12 lbs of apples will make a quart of cider. Volunteers needed for the cider pressing station, Contact Urban Abundance to learn more
