The Julian Merchants Association’s "Wanted — Golden Apple” campaign will kick off Sept. 15, marking the official start of the Julian Apple Days celebration. There will be merchant posters and golden apples to hide, and prizes for shoppers who find them.
The Julian Apple Days Festival will be held Oct. 6 and 7 at Menghini Winery, offering a special weekend full of fun for the whole family. The event will feature apple displays, music, an antique tractor and farm equipment display, pie eating contest, children’s games and activities, gold panning demonstrations, a beer, wine and hard cider garden, food and merchandise vendors and, of course, apple pie. Winners of the Julian Woman’s Club pie baking contest will also be announced.
The event runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Admission is $5 for adults, with children 12 and under free.
