Graves Mountain Lodge Apple Harvest Festival

This celebration of fall in the Blue Ridge Mountains is held on two consecutive weekends every October. Apple butter and Brunswick stew are cooked in huge kettles over an open fire, and the apple orchards are open for picking. Other attractions include bluegrass music, local arts and crafts, horseback riding, hay rides, and food. The festival began in 1970.
