Acushnet’s 2023 Apple Peach Festival returns this weekend


ACUSHNET — Acushnet will be commemorating its 42nd Apple Peach Festival on Saturday, Sept. 9 and Sunday, Sept. 10 with its traditional festivities including food, music, crafts and entertainment.

This long-standing celebration will once again give thanks to the coming of the fall harvest. There will be freshly-picked produce, homemade peach, apple and custard pies and pastries to market, as well as a variety of homemade foods including Chorizo Sandwiches and the The Candy Apple – celebrating 50 years.

Located at the Long Plain Museum at 1203 Main St., this time-honored festival celebrates Acushnet’s love of the fall harvest. Since 1979, local farmers have gathered to sell apples (and later peaches) in Acushnet. The two-day event attracts up to 4,000 people honoring these juicy fruits.

Lauren Mitcheson prepares a bag of peaches from the Flying Cloud Orchard for a customer during the Apple-Peach Festival in Acushnet in 2019. The last two festivals have been canceled due to COVID-19 safety concerns.

The festival, which was canceled the last two years due to COVID, also features local food vendors, live music, entertainment, police and fire department demonstrations, art & crafts tables and a parade.

Two fun-filled days will be full of entertainment, crafts, and of course food. Here are the details.
