About the Benefit Concert: 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.
