Join us for a day of family fun celebrating apple harvest season!

Visit our historic sites to see how past cooks would prepare and serve apple treats, such as apple butter, cake or pie, and cider. Print an apple recipe in the print shop and catch the action at an 1870s-rules baseball game at 1:30pm.*

Then purchase tasty treats from Iowa Orchard including bags of apples, homemade caramel apples, homemade pies (whole and by the slice), freshly pressed apple cider, preserves and honey, and tasty fudge! Enjoy apple egg rolls, apple slush, apple pastries, and cookies from Applishus and get your fair food fix with hot beef sundaes, deep fried oreos, tenderloins, and walking tacos from Fair Food Fridays Food Truck.

*Please note: This season we have removed the bleachers. Please bring a lawn chair or blanket to watch the game and spread out from other visitors.
