Annual Events

Oct. 3, 2015: Fall Fest

Slide Rock photographAt Fall Festival visitors can enjoy the park in Oak Creek Canyon with special activities

Come celebrate the fall in beautiful Oak Creek Canyon at the Slide Rock State Park Fall Festival on Saturday, October 3, 2015 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. This event is presented by Arizona State Parks, the Friends of Slide Rock and volunteers. Bring a picnic and enjoy the day with exhibits and demonstrations, wild plants of Slide Rock State Park, kid’s activities at the Junior Ranger Station, tractors and flywheelers.

The Park for many years was a large orchard and today is still a working commercial apple ranch producing more than 1,200 boxes of apples in 2007 in the park. Fall Fest guests are treated to special programs to enjoy the park.

Frank L. Pendley arrived in the canyon in 1907 and acquired the land title as part of the Homestead Act in 1910. He put in the irrigation system and planted the apple orchard in 1912. In 1933 he built the rustic cabins seen in the park today. It was sold to the Arizona Parklands Foundation for $3.6 million in 1984 to become a State Park. An original vintage 30-foot-long apple-sorting machine reconstructed by volunteers is still in the historic Pendley apple shed. Volunteers demonstrate the art of sorting different sizes of apples for boxing and selling. Learn about this year's event specifics below:
