16octAll DayAnnual Apple Butter Festival

Event Details

Join Wade’s Mill (c.1750), Virginia’s oldest, continuously operating commercial grist mill for their 25th Annual Apple Butter Festival.

They will be making apple butter the old-fashioned way, slow simmered in a 130+ year old copper pot over an open fire. Take a turn stirring with the long-handled paddle and take home a fresh jar.

Enjoy demonstrations and handcrafted work by local artisans and craftspeople and find unique gifts.

Explore Wade’s Mill’s three floors of historic milling equipment and museum displays.  Their 100% natural flours, grits, cornmeals and mixes will be available in the Mill Shop along with a curated selection of local food products and gifts.

Free admission and parking.
