First held in 1888, the fair now known as Johnny Appleseed Days is the oldest ongoing harvest Festival in the state! In 2017, we celebrate the 129th anniversary of this treasured Paradise tradition, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce since 1937. The 2017 two-day fall festival will celebrate Paradise’s apple heritage with homemade apple pie and ice cream. Paradise residents and members of the Paradise Ridge Chamber of Commerce will again bake up to one thousand apple pies, available whole and in slices

Paradise t-shirts and souvenirs will be available from the Paradise Ridge Chamber of Commerce booth. Local businesses will give demonstrations and display their wares, and will host artisans from all over the state and beyond, selling a variety of handicrafts.

The ever-popular children’s area will feature face painting, games for the young and old alike, and prizes. Johnny Appleseed will visit and tell stories. There will be continuous entertainment both days. For more information, go to
