This Year’s Gravenstein Apple Fair Becomes ‘Grav & Go’ Event

The much-loved fair is canceled due to the pandemic, but apple lovers can still get their fix thanks to a new pop-up event.

The much-loved Gravenstein Apple Fair is canceled this year due to the pandemic, but don’t despair: apple lovers can still get their fix thanks to a new “Grav & Go” event.

Taking place on the weekend of Aug. 15 and 16, the event will feature a variety of products — apple-scented soaps, ciders, juice, pies and more — from local farmers and producers, including Backyard restaurant, Dutton Ranch, Lala’s Jam Bar & Urban Farmstead, Meyer Apples, Mom’s Apple Pie, North Coast Organic, Tilted Shed Ciderworks, and The Soap Cauldron.

All products are made from Gravenstein apples and will be available for curbside pickup at the Sebastopol Community Cultural Center during the weekend event. Orders should be placed in advance online (deadline is Aug. 13, at noon).

The annual fair, now in its 47th year, is the primary fundraiser for local nonprofit Sonoma County Farm Trails and continues to benefit the organization through this year’s event. All participating vendors are members of the “Farm Trails family” and customers can choose to add a donation to their order. (If you donate $50 or more, you will receive an apple-themed reversible cloth face mask sewn by Farm Trails volunteers).

“Connecting the public with our local growers and producers is a big part of what we do,” said Carmen Snyder, Farm Trails’ executive director and manager of the Gravenstein Apple Fair. “In the absence of the fair this year, the pop-up concept provides a safe way to do that and add a little taste of the fair in the process. We’re making the pickup experience as fun and festive as possible.”

  1. As I lost my job six months back in my company, I started searching for new one. I wanted something which is reliable and authentic. I began doing an authentic online based job and I started making money almost $15000-$16000 every month. It is not a con like getting “rich over night” that was basically advertising schemes where you have to firstly make interested customers and then sell a product to friends or any person in order that they will be in your team. Online job opportunity provided me independence to work in my time and space. I am able to spend time every day with my family members without stressing over my work and can plan out for trip. Here’s the most convenient way to begin.>>>>>>>>
