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 an active participant in this community celebration! New for 2023, we will be making Apple Butter at the festival!
PLEASE NOTE: FORT NEW SALEM WILL BE ON THE FESTIVAL GROUNDS FOR ALL FOUR DAYS BUT “THE FORT” WILL ONLY BE OPEN ON SATURDAY
