Gravenstein Apple Fair Benefit Concert

Aug 14, 2021

Ragle Ranch Park

$60 - $1,200 (VIP)

We hope you’ll join us on August 14th in the lovely oak grove of Ragle Ranch Regional Park for a stellar event. Tickets are limited, and we encourage you to reserve your spot now.

This year we are producing a Benefit Concert to raise funds so that we can bring back the Gravenstein Apple Fair for a grand convergence in 2022. Come celebrate the Gravensteins (get bulk apples and your favorite Grav products and treats), enjoy live music, food, and drinks in our beautiful County park, and connect safely with community, which we are all so eager to do after this past year.

Since 1973, Sonoma County Farm Trails has produced the Gravenstein Apple Fair (GAF) as our primary annual fundraiser to help us fulfill our mission of supporting diversified agriculture and keeping farms forever in Sonoma County. GAF 2020 was cancelled due to the pandemic, and our team has been closely tracking State and County guidelines to determine what is possible for outdoor public events. We’ve crafted a unique, intimate experience centered around our beloved Gravenstein apple, excellent live music, farm-to-table local food, and premium libations.

PLEASE NOTE: Tickets are non-refundable. (See our Cancellation & Refund Policy below for full details.)

EARLYBIRD TICKETS: General admission tickets start at $60 and include a commemorative glass for use during the event and to take home with you as a memento. Parking is free, and we recommend carpooling (or cycling) since space may be limited.

  • After July 1st, general admission tickets will be $75/person.
  • Tickets are only available by pre-sale online, not on site.
  • We expect this event to sell out. A limited number of earlybird tickets have been reserved for Sebastopol residents. Upon checkout, simply enter your zip code as the access code to enjoy this locals-only benefit.
