5th Annual Pipers Orchard Festival of Fruit

The 5th annual Festival of Fruit will be taking place on Saturday, September 24th from 10:00 AM until 2:30 PM at the Carkeek Park Environmental Learning Center. We hope you’re marking your calendars to join in our celebration of Piper orchard’s 120th anniversary. The agenda is posted on our website. Our keynote speaker will be Susan Dolan, a National Park Service expert on historic orchards. We’ll have several other interesting speakers, and of course, our apple pie contest, cider pressing, orchard apple tasting, music, kids crafts, Tillie’s Café so you can enjoy cider and apple pie, and a trek to the orchard with a number of knowledgeable folks there to answer questions.

We encourage you to consider entering an apple pie in the contest; they’re due by 10:30 on the 24th. If you’d like to make a pie using orchard apples, please contact donricks@hotmail.com.

A final note: we could really use some volunteers to help with the cider press, help direct traffic, and help set up tables of chairs the morning of the festival.
