JULIAN, CA - 09/15/2018 (PRDistribution.com)
The mountain town of Julian, California (considered the "Hidden Gem" of San Diego County) is celebrating their apple harvest season in a number of different ways this year, not the least of which will be their Julian Old Fashioned Country Fair.
The fair will be September 22 & 23, 2018 from 10 am to 5 pm at Julian Farm & Orchard, 4381 CA-78 Julian, CA 92036. The two days will be filled with fun and festivities designed to entertain every member of your family, including: beer & wine garden, food vendors, arts & crafts vendors, a pie baking contest and pies to eat all weekend, old fashioned games like tug of war, three legged races, spoon races, etc., a pumpkin patch, face painting, quilt display, tomahawk throw, archery, petting zoo, and pony rides!
Just one hour east of San Diego, Julian offers a step back in time to the days of the California Gold Rush. Julian was founded by Civil War veterans in search of fortune. The gold disappeared quickly, but Julian's unique weather soon produced another bonanza: apples! For decades, Julian was famous for its award-winning apple crops and continues to host thousands of visitors each year who come to celebrate the harvest and revel in all things apple.
Sponsored by the Julian Chamber of Commerce, admission to the fair is free with small fees for some of the activities. For more information about the Julian Old Fashioned Country Fair, visit the Chamber's website at www.visitjulian.com.
