Gibbs Farm Apple Festival 2021
September 25 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Gibbs Farm Apple Festival is back this year, in-person and outdoors.
Get ready for apple history, apple treats, apple sampling, and apple games. We will have all the old favorites; music from Light of The Moon Band, face painting, tours AND some new fun.
In the orchard: Expert orchardists and amateur apple enthusiasts will be able to enjoy samples, test their pomology knowledge, and hear from the talented group of Gibbs Farm Apple Volunteers. This is a once a year opportunity to experience and learn about the truly special living collection of heritage apple varieties.
In the prairie: Help us out by participating in a family friendly seed saving activity with the MN SEED Project or grab a self-guided Tiŋta (prairie) exploration scavenger hunt.
In the Courtyard: Eat some apple treats and make some apple art! Listen to music from Light of the Moon and get moving with some barn dancing for all levels. Bring your own picnic lunch or purchase food from the food truck.
Front Lawn: Test your skill with a variety of apple games and challenges.
Farmhouse Porch : We are bringing the Summer Kitchen Outdoors! Hear the story of Jane and Heman Gibbs and explore kitchen items that were in use almost 200 years ago!
