The South Jersey Apple Fest, a two-day event that will celebrate everything apples, is coming to the Cumberland County Fairgrounds. Families are invited to kick-off the apple harvest season.
This festival will be packed full of delicious treats from apple pies, apple doughnuts, candy apples, apple bread, apple fritters, apple salad and of course apple butter. Bakers are invited to enter their best apple dessert in the Everything Apple Dessert Contest on Saturday at 2pm. After judging, families visiting the festival will have the opportunity to sample the entries for free. The Apple Mascot will make an appearance both days and will be available for photos.
Over 75 talented artists and crafters will offer amazing works from clothing to ceramics, paintings, pottery, glasswork, soaps, candles, quilting, woodworking, wreaths to handcrafted jewelry.
There will also be a Fall Home Show, offering savings on hundreds of products and services.
The Little Miss Apple Pageant for girls ages 5-9, from Cumberland County, are being sought. The Pageant will be held at the festival on Sunday at 2pm.
