Overview:

Fall is upon us and there is no better way to kick-off the season then by joining us for the 21st Annual Apple Day Celebration. The celebration will feature traditional Appalachian arts and crafts and demonstrations. We will be cooking up some delicious homemade apple butter so stop by and take your turn stirring the kettle. Watch and learn about apple farming, white oak basket weaving, blacksmithing and more.
Enjoy fall foliage on a hay wagon ride. Play children's games from years ago, pick out a pumpkin to carve, milk a cow, churn cream into butter, see how corn husk dolls are made and even more.
Entertainment by Crimson River, High Voltage Cloggers, The McKensies and Virginia Fast. Great food will be available so don't miss the Pig Roast Dinner, Brunswick Stew and more. While there is a parking fee, entry is free!
