Applebutter Fest highlights food, artworks, music and living history

The Applebutter Fest will celebrate 43 years this end of the week.

On Saturday at 7 p.m. in the Wright Pavilion on the Towpath, President Lincoln will offer a Civil War church service.

The fest starts Sunday at 10 a.m. with a cannon impact (in spite of the fact that groups accumulate prior) and keeps running until 5 p.m. It offers verifiable reenactments, pioneer ​demonstrations, makes, unrecorded music and food along the Maumee River.

The Living History Encampment along the Towpath will incorporate cannon and black powder rifle shoot and offers youngsters and families an opportunity to step back so as to watch and connect with demonstrators from the French Indian War through the Civil War time frames. Artisans, craftsmen, homemakers, and tradesmen will exhibit a wide scope of abilities on the towpath and in the Village Park beside the memorable Town Hall, where apple butter is made over fire and canned for the duration of the day.

There are two entertainment stages on Front Street — one at the east end by Mill Street and one at west end by Beaver Street. Another stage is set up around the local area (Howard) Park. “Old thyme music” can be heard in the Living History Experience along the Tow Path.

As of late, the Children’s Entertainment Stage on Front Street has highlighted performers, ventriloquists, puppeteers, costumed storytellers and comedians, who make swell creatures, paint faces and apply transitory hair shading. Seating is given.

Crafters will be set up on Front Street, in Pirate Park and in Labino Park.

When the fest is more than, 2,800 containers of applebutter will have been canned and sold. Copper pots will be set up over log fires in Village Park neighboring the Town Hall. Volunteers mix the creamy fruit spread with a wooden oar. All are free to take a turn mixing the creamy fruit spread. Free apple juice is accessible during the mixing.

Parking areas and transport administration are situated on the Henry-Wood County Line Road close to County Road Q; Wapakoneta Road; Sycamore Road; the edge of Ludwig and Grand Rapids streets; and 11900 Jeffers Road. Transports are accessible to ship guests from these parts to the midtown settings. A few of the parcels are crippled open.
