Bounty of the Hood River valley is on display in Fruit Celebration, Aug. 16-17

This weekend, all along the Hood River Valley Fruit Loop, find berries, peaches, cherries, Gravenstein apples, the earliest pears, all kinds of fresh summer garden produce, apple treats, wine and hard cider tasting, and country fun for the whole family….

Find a good selection of luscious berries, delectable peaches and other stone fruit. Early apples, including highly-prized heirloom Gravenstein apples, considered “the best” by many bakers and cooks for pies, applesauce and desserts, are ready.

Participating fruit stands and attractions along the Fruit Loop will have all manner of the freshest summer fruit and produce during the celebration, as well as gourmet food products, wines and hard ciders, bakery goods, and a range of tasty food—along with activities and entertainment. Some farms and wineries have planned special offerings during the weekend event.

Most farms and attractions along the Fruit Loop are open from at least 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily (wineries open at 11 a.m.).
