Dig into favorite apple dishes from crisp apple fritters and warm apple pie to savory apple dumplings and freshly pressed apple cider from Peddler’s Village restaurant and merchant booths. The Peddler’s Village restaurants will feature delicious apple specialties all weekend.
Take home a bushel of green, golden or red delicious apples from local orchard, Fairview Farm of Pineville. Watch authentic demonstrations of cider production in an antique cider press and cooking old-fashioned apple butter in a huge cauldron stirred by hand over an open fire.
Once stomachs are satisfied, enjoy the live musical entertainment, jugglers and stilt walkers on the Main Green. Shop the unique handcrafted items at the 40 artisan booths on the Street Road Green that include decorative ironwork, folk art, jewelry, pottery, Victorian stained glass, leather creations, hand painted and reproduction furniture.
Each afternoon, cheer on the brave contestants in the traditional pie eating contests. The Apple Pie Eating Contest, held at 3 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday, provides lots of laughs and prizes for winners. Competitions are held in these age categories -- 10 and under, 11-14 and 15 and up.
