2013 marks the festival's 36th year and the 15th year for our new downtown site. RAIN, SHINE or SNOW!!
The Enon Community Historical Society sponsors the annual Enon Apple Butter Festival as a community service project.
The Historical Society makes apple butter the old fashion way in 50 gallon copper kettles, cooked over open fires. Canning and selling of the apple butter is done at the festival in the afternoon when it becomes ready. Annual attendance is estimated at 8-10,000 for the two days. Admission to the festival grounds is free. Free parking is available.
The Apple Butter Festival began as a fund raising event for the Enon Community Historical Society. Today the Festival continues to be the Society's main event for funding but also for many non-profit community organizations, churches and school groups.
In previous years the festival was located on the Village Green adjacent to the Enon Village Hall (Government Center). The Government Center was renovated utilizing a majority of the area used for the Festival. The "hunt" was on for a new location and the Apple Butter Committee did an excellent job locating that perfect spot. Now we are located on South Xenia St. and the grounds of Enon Elementary School.
The 2012 Enon Apple Butter Festival is held on the 2nd weekend of October.
Sunday 11am - 5pm
