On Saturday, September 2nd, 2017 the 6th Annual Appleseed Country Fair will kick off! The fair will be held at Red Apple Farm located at 455 Highland Avenue in Phillipston, MA and the hours will run from 10am-6pm on the 2nd, 10am-5pm on the 3rd and 10am-4pm on the 4th.
The Appleseed Country Fair will feature over 50 vendors that range from artisans and crafters to food, beer and wine. There are even vendors just for the kids like face painting and marshmallow shooters! Speaking of the kids we will have a brand new kid’s area that will feature crafts, activities, animals and a rock climbing wall.
Live music will be entertaining the crowds all weekend and on Sunday we will be holding our 3rd annual FiddleFest, one of the largest fiddle competitions in New England. Last year we had 27 fiddlers with ages ranging from 5 to 68, and we are expecting bigger numbers for this year!
Also, the fair is bringing back the Human John Deere Tractor Pull Competition! Competitors will be pulling full sized farm tractors with nothing but their own strength. Tractors will range from garden tractors for the kids to massive full size tractors for the adults who really want to test their strength. On Monday, the fair will also feature a display of World War II era vehicles and memorabilia, including a tank! On Saturday and Sunday, RC Excitement will host remote control car races throughout the day for fairgoers.
We would like to thank our sponsors, Red Apple Farm, The Gardner Ale House, CrossFit 696, The Massachusetts Office of Travel & Tourism, and Padula Brothers – John Deere for making this event possible.
There will be a $10 per car parking donation with all proceeds going to the Athol Firefighters Association, Phillipston Firefighters Association and the Johnny Appleseed Trail Association.
