On October 8th and 9th, join for two days of music, crafts, food and games starring apple butter in kettles you can stir - all along the historic streets and park of Berkeley Springs.
This event is free to attend, starting with a Saturday morning parade. More than 100 vendors plus local shops.
We’ve MISSED the smell of apple butter cooking in the street. Music coming from the bandstand. Exploring the stunning art and craft booths. The sound of people calling for hogs (that thankfully never seem to show up) in the hog calling contest. Rooting on our favorite rubber duck in the duck race. Drooling over baked goods with blue ribbons. Clutching our raffle tickets and hoping to win the Apple Butter Quilt. Kids feeling like celebrities after marching in the parade. Gentlemen with beards groomed perfectly waiting to strut their faces off for the Beard Contest.
Featuring over 150 vendors, live entertainment and contests, the Apple Butter Festival is a place to make memories. Saturday morning kicks off with our wonderful Apple Butter Parade with floats, bands, costumes, and the joy of a small community coming together. Sample domestic and craft beers in our Beer Garden - this year featuring a stage with music, and even an axe throwing booth! Check out the classic cars in our Cruise In. Visit the food court for a treat that will make every taste bud dance. Explore the delightful area, the shops, the spas, the hotels and restaurants, and experience a true small town fall adventure.
