Did you know that FORT NEW SALEM gave birth to the APPLE BUTTER FESTIVAL? What started as a fall festival at the Fort evolved into the SALEM APPLE BUTTER FESTIVAL. While, today, the festival is its own entity, FORT NEW SALEM remains a participant in the community celebration!
SPECIAL FESTIVAL HOURS
Fort New Salem will be open on Friday & Saturday (October 4 & 5) from 12 – 5 PM in celebration of the community Apple Butter Festival. General admission to the Fort is $5 with children 10 & under admitted free. Tours will occur on each day with a special Saturday demonstration on tomahawk throwing.
BOOTH ON THE APPLE BUTTER FESTIVAL GROUNDS
Fort New Salem will also host a booth on the Apple Butter Festival grounds and will feature a stock lock up for a unique photo opportunity and have maple syrup cotton candy made on site and available to purchase.
