ENON — The 42nd annual Enon Apple Butter Festival is taking place this weekend after being canceled last year due to the pandemic.
The festival kicked off October 9th, on South Xenia St. and the grounds of Enon Elementary School this year.
Today, October 10th, gates open at 11:00 a.m. and close at 5:00 p.m.
There will be food vendors selling apple butter, apple dumplings, peanuts in the shell and by the bag, funnel cakes, porkchops, hamburgers, and more.
Volunteers will demonstrate the apple butter production by cooking all apple butter sold over a fire in copper kettles.
“The Historical Society makes apple butter the old-fashioned way in six, 50-gallon copper kettles, cooked over open wood-burning fires. Canning and selling of the apple butter is done at the festival in the afternoon as it becomes ready,” festival organizers said.
There will also be craft booths, music, and other entertainment at the festival.
