Autumn is our favorite time of year along the coast, and we invite you to join us at Fort Ross Harvest Festival, generously underwritten by Renova Fort Ross Foundation.

In addition to the inspirational song and dance of Kedry, this year we are proud to also host the full Kitka ensemble to Ross to help us celebrate the changing season. The day offers a wide variety of activities suitable for all ages and interests:


  • Song and dance, and gentle apple harvesting in the historic orchard, with tractor & hay bale ride,
  • Interpretive talks by dedicated experts on the historic orchard, replica windmill, and the Alaskan marine history at Ross,
  • Working demonstration of replica Russian-style windmill,
  • Food trucks with delicious seasonal fare for sale,
  • Local samples of heirloom apples, apple cider, apple baked goods, Sonoma cheese, and more,
  • Historic crafts, cannon firing, communal dances,
  • New: Fort Ross-Seaview Wine Tasting and Luncheon (see below).
