The show’s organizers aim “to educate and inspire people to grow and enjoy tasty apples and pears,” especially those grown locally. Fruit tasting and shopping are also part of the event, and grafted trees suitable for this area will be for sale.
Admission is a suggested donation of $2 per person or $5 per family.
Joseph Postman of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Pear Repository in Corvallis, Ore., will serve as featured speaker.
The Olympic Orchard Society, founded by Sequim residents Erik and Del Simpson, hosts the show and offers information about planting, care and enjoyment of fruit trees.
