Basket filled with fresh-picked apples.19th Century Apple & Cheese Harvest Festival and Apple Pie Baking Competition. This delicious-sounding event celebrates Johnny Appleseed’s birthday, September 24, 2017, at the Justin Morrill State Historic Site in Strafford, Vermont. The stars of the fest are delicious homegrown heirloom apples and fine artisan Vermont cheeses. Enjoy a slice of apple pie, and check out the winning recipes. There will be activities to amuse the entire family—including face painting and live farm animals for the kids, and wonderful old timey banjo and fiddle tunes by Out on a Limb that will have everyone tapping their feet. Make your own cider in an antique press, play period games, hike along the Lookout Trail, or check out the old icehouse and historic home. The event takes place rain or shine.
