50th Annual Apple Butter Stirrin’
October 16 - October 18$5
Roscoe Village’s Apple Butter Stirrin’ recaptures the flavor of an old time harvest celebration. Highlighting this 50-year-old festival is the making of homemade apple butter in large copper kettles over crackling wood fires. The festival includes handmade crafts and exhibits, demonstrations, outdoor stage entertainment, and various activities. In addition, the Monticello III Canal Boat will make its final runs of the season.
Smell the fresh apple butter simmering over an open fire as you stroll through the street, lined with more than 100 craft and food vendors, and listen to the tunes of bluegrass and music from days gone by. Events throughout the weekend include Living History Tours, “Spirit of Roscoe” lantern tour (offered at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday only, reservations are required), horse-drawn canal boat rides, and a children’s activity area.
