58 years as one of Wisconsin’s premiere festivals, the Bayfield Apple Festival is a celebration of the autumn harvest and Bayfield’s agricultural heritage. Tour the orchards and wineries, peruse fine arts and crafts while sampling local foods at more than 60 food booths. Live music by the Blue Canvas Orchestra of Big Top Chautauqua and a carnival round out the offerings.

Touted by USA TODAY as one of the 10 Best Fall Harvest Festivals in the nations, special events include the crowning of the Apple Queen, and apple peeling contest and a Saturday evening fish fry at the historic Bayfield Lakeside Pavilion. The festival culminates with the Grand Parade, featuring a mass band with 400 participants playing On Wisconsin, marching down historic Rittenhouse Avenue, to Lake Superior.
