26th Annual Apple Butter Festival, Saturday, October 15, 2022
October 15 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Join us on October 15 for the 26th Annual Apple Butter Festival and celebrate fall at Wade’s Mill.
We’ll be making apple butter the old-fashioned way, slow simmered in a 130+ year old copper pot over an open fire.
Take a turn stirring with the long-handled paddle and take home a jar of Glenn Wilson’s famous, freshly made, 100% natural apple butter.
Enjoy demonstrations and find unique, handcrafted work and gifts by local artisans and crafts people. Delicious local food and drink and music all day. Arrive early, bring a blanket or lawn chair for the music and stay all day so you don’t miss out!
