The LaFayette area has long been recognized as one of the primary apple producing regions of Upstate New York. Its rural atmosphere, rolling hills, and beautiful fall foliage make LaFayette a wonderful setting for one of the northeast’s premier arts and crafts show. We celebrate this year by bringing you more crafters than ever before, over 500, and by making numerous improvements to the grounds themselves.
The high quality of the exhibitors, uniqueness of products offered, and diversity make the Apple Fest a hit for everyone! Visitors attend every year from all parts of New York and even New England, while crafters and artisans from numerous states display their wares. This small community has grown accustomed to having 90,000 visitors every Columbus Day weekend.
In addition to the crafts, the Apple Fest also presents many special events and daily features. View some of the most original scarecrows you’ll ever see at the Scarecrow Contest. The Apple Queen and Apple Pie competitions are always a hit among the towns people.
