Everything About Apples All Day Long!
It’s the peak of apple harvesting time. During this beautiful fall season, the Hay Creek Apple Festival offers a wonderful day with some great family fun. All ages will enjoy the brisk fall air and savor the delicious array of homemade Hay Creek apple specialties. The Festival’s home is Historic Joanna Furnace off of Route 10. Parking is on site with a parking donation. Every imaginable apple food is available throughout the day. . . from fresh cider to fritters, pies crisp and dumplings and so much more. And, in 2023 our all-you-can-eat apple pancake breakfast will once again be served in the Joanna Furnace Mule Stable from 7 am to 10 am. This breakfast also includes a hearty piece of country sausage! The apple cider press will be featured with continuous demonstrations and fresh apple cider for your purchase.
Mabel’s Kettle Soup is also a special treat at our apple festival! Her Chicken Corn Noodle, Beef Vegetable and Ham & Bean Soup is cooked to perfection over the open fire. Additional festive foods and beverages will be served. Homemade PA Dutch Chicken Pot Pie will also be available to purchase by the bowl or by the quart to take home. Hot Dogs, hamburgers and pulled pork sandwiches will also be served.
Numerous family activities round out the festival. These family events include scarecrow building, pumpkin painting, early American games, hay and pony rides. The children will especially love a ride on the Apple Barrel Express. Visitors can also shop at the flea market area that offers over 100 vendors with crafts, flowers, fall items and an array of unexpected items for anyone’s interest.
