The Tradition Continues

Fall fun for the whole family!

Did you know? The Ruthven Apple Festival, hosted annually by Colasanti’s Tropical Gardens, has been a family tradition for over 40 years. Each year over 100 vendors and thousands of patrons flock to the festival grounds to enjoy live music, great food, games, and shopping.

Stay tuned for vendor application information.

We can’t wait to see you again in 2024!

For more information or to volunteer, please contact Tony DeSantis, Manager, Community Relations and Resource Development at 519-776-6483, extension 246 or email at
