The 47th Annual Harvest Festival

Autumn is a vibrant time to visit the Rancho! Taste syrup from our burro driven sorghum mill, help make cider by cranking a traditional apple press, and pick a pumpkin from our scarecrow-guarded patch. Children can stomp grapes by foot, make corn husk crafts or roll their own delicious tortilla by hand. There’s a lot to do at this long-running and acclaimed event!

Voted #2 Best Fall Harvest Festival in the nation by readers of USA Today.

Saturday, October 5 & Sunday, October 6

Time: 10am to 4pm
Adult Admission: $8
