October 12th & 13th
Celebrate the harvest at Carpenter Nature Center’s annual Apple Festival. This event is held snow or shine, with several activities being adjusted to accommodate the colder weather.
At our orchard enjoy pick-your-own Apples and Pumpkins, the volunteer bake sale, cider-making demonstrations, pumpkin painting, delicious apple brats from the Hastings Lions Club, and more! In our Visitor Center learn about the animals of the St. Croix River Valley, get your face painted, and have fun with kids crafts and other activities.
This event would not be possible without the support of generous donors. Please consider sponsoring this event! For more information, contact Erika.
