Cloud Mountain Farm 30th Annual Fall Fruit Festival in October

Join Cloud Mountain Farm Center for their 30th Annual Fall Fruit Festival, Saturday, October 5, 2019 from 10 a.m.– 5 p.m. and Sunday, October 6, 2019 from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. in Bellingham, Washington.

Experience the farm firsthand and savor the bounty of the region. This family-friendly event features tastings of over 200 varieties of fruits and vegetables, all grown at the Cloud Mountain Farm Center.



Enjoy live music, children’s activities, cider-pressing, fruit-tasting, the pumpkin patch, the farm stand, and a self-guided farm tour, including opportunities to talk to local fruit-tree and gardening experts. Pizza’zza New York-style pizza will be on-hand for lunch, and Mallard Ice Cream will be scooping up ice cream made with Cloud Mountain fruit for dessert. There will be pumpkins and squash, fruit, vegetables, and cider for sale, specials from the nursery, and a sale on fruit trees – buy two, and get the third free!

To celebrate the 30th year of the festival, Cloud Mountain Farm Center is offering a $30 Super Supporter Pass that includes admission for one vehicle, as well as a free Cloud Mountain Farm Center hat and caramel apple. No dogs are allowed at this family-friendly event.

Don’t miss the opportunity to support the region’s local food system and the growth of the community. Cloud Mountain Farm Center helps grow new farmers through their internship and incubator farm programs, educates home gardeners, and increases the diversity of fruit varieties grown in Western Washington. All proceeds from the Fall Fruit Festival go toward supporting the education programs at Cloud Mountain Farm Center.

This event is made possible by the following community sponsors: Haggen, Keenan’s at the Pier, Peoples Bank, CHS Northwest, Farmers Equipment Co., Scratch and Peck Feeds, Pizza’zza, and Larson Gross, PPLC.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
