September 27, 2012 (Julian)—Ah, autumn! Fall is in the air—and Julian celebrates the season with a full month of “Apple Days” activities ranging from apple picking to an old-fashioned melodrama (boo the villain and cheer the heroine) and yes, an Oktoberfest. 

Crowning the festivities, the Julian Apple Days Festival will take place October 6 and 7.  But there’s much more to savor in East County’s historic gold rush town, where apple pies and tourism are the new sources of riches.  Scroll down for details on October events in Julian.
