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, you can start the day with an all-you-can-eat apple pancake breakfast, served from 7 am to 11 am. The apple cider press will be featured with continuous demonstrations and fresh apple cider for your purchase.
Traditional apple food like “Schnitz und Knepp” (apples, dumplings and ham) is always a special treat at our apple festival; as well as Mabel’s Kettle Soup, 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.
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.
