Celebrate the Great Grav
Grapes may get the limelight in Sonoma County, but our rich soil is also friend to another crop: Gravenstein apples. The sweet, crunchy fruit is the star of the annual Gravenstein Apple Fair, where there’ll be apple ciders, sauces, and breads galore as well as a lineup of more than 20 live music acts. Kids can pet sheep, llamas, goats, and other animals in the Farm Yard, and make crafts such as flower crowns, felted soap, and seed balls. There’ll be giant bubbles, a stilt walker, and ag games for children, too. The fair will be held August 13–14, 10 a.m.–6 p.m., at Ragle Ranch Park in Sebastopol. Tickets are $10–$25, free for ages 5 and younger, and may be purchased at gravensteinapplefair.com or at the gate.
