About 49th Annual Apple Butter Stirrin’ Festival

The three days of Apple Butter Stirrin' officially begin on Friday, October 19th, at 10:00 a.m. Crafters' and artisans' booths line the street with an array of unique handmade items including jewelry, home and garden items, paintings, pottery, and other creative discoveries. Of course, no stroll through the festival would be complete without sampling the delicious assortment of unique foods, which include home-made soup, apple butter burgers, steak sandwiches, sweet potato fries, cinnamon-roasted nuts, and kettle corn. As part of their festival admission, guests can go on a Living History Tour at their leisure to see what life was like in a 19th century town nestled along the Ohio and Erie Canal. Also throughout the weekend, younger visitors can enjoy the kids' activity area, complete with tin punching and various crafts as well as educational activities, which include outdoor living demonstrations. The weekend's events are accented by musical entertainment with performances by traditional dulcimer players, bluegrass bands, gospel singers, and country music artists. The nearby Monticello III offers a taste of life on the canal with its horse-drawn boat rides.
