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 Saturday (October 8) from 10 – 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. We will be making apple butter at the fort and have multiple artisans scheduled to demonstrate.
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.
