Welcome to the Dairyville Orchard Festival home page! October 18
will mark our seventeenth annual event! Make plans now to attend this exciting community event filled with great food,
music, children's activities, local produce and more!
Do you like to volunteer at worthwhile events?
Our entire event is organized by volunteers of all ages. We always need volunteers during set up, take down, and throughout
the day of the event. Please see the volunteer page for more
information on how you can become a volunteer!
Why is the Dairyville Orchard Festival so special? In sixteen years, the Festival has raised and
awarded $142,500 in scholarship monies. The event is a celebration of our local harvest season, allowing our residents an
opportunity to share our beautiful area and produce with all who attend.
of the many highlights of the festival is the Dairyville Orchard Festival Marketplace (you can’t miss the huge tent
in the middle!) where festival attendees can taste and buy California’s finest and freshest Walnuts, Almonds, dried
Plums, Pecans and Pistachios. You can also sample wonderful seasoned nuts, Walnettos, Jordan almonds, Sunbursts,
local olive oils and the now famous Dairyville Chocolate Dipped Prunes. You will want to shop early as
they always run out of the thousands of pounds of product they prepare for the day. Nuts and candies are
available in bulk and in attractive packaging for the perfect holiday gift!
Other Festival activities include
live entertainment, lil’ farmers’ corner, annual t-shirts, unique arts and crafts (over 60 vendors!), huge display
of antique tractors and orchard equipment, fantastic food, raffles and silent auction and more local produce! There is never
an entry or parking fee! Just come and enjoy our celebration of the local harvest season!
In an effort to promote
local agricultural products, provide an arena for artists and crafters, raise money with the primary purpose of providing
educational scholarships to local students, and supplying an activity for the meeting and greeting of neighbors and friends,
the Dairyville Community Club, Inc. hosts the Dairyville Orchard Festival each year on the third Saturday of October.
