We love Onalaska! We love small! We love Community!
A big thank you to the Onalaska Alliance who successfully completed another great festival this year. For a community of 600-700 people to have an estimated 4,000 visitors is tremendous.

When you work, live or play in a small town the roots go deep and the friendships formed last a life time. The Apple Harvest Festival has
something for everyone!
The theme of the Onalaska Apple Harvest Festival is to celebrate our rural roots and agricultural heritage. Our event highlights what it's like to live in the country surrounded by nature. The name “Apple Harvest" speaks to the values of small town living where everyone has an apple tree in their back yard. Come and help us celebrate the fall harvest with fun activities that can be enjoyed by the entire family.
From the parade, the poetry reading, cider pressing, vendor galore and the quilt show everyone had a great time! We may have had a shower here and there but the atmosphere was sunny and a good times were had by all. Denise and Grant handed out airplanes and candy during the parade! We especially enjoyed Hot Dogs, Hamburgers and Breakfast sandwiches from our friends at Zippity Do Dog!
Mark you calendars for the first weekend in October in 2020 , be part of the fun and come visit Onalaska if you dare!
