Dunbar United Church of Christ will hold its 43rd Annual Apple Festival on Saturday, Oct. 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
In addition to purchasing delicious apple pies made by the members of the Dunbar Women’s Fellowship Committee, a wide range of apple dishes are available to eat at the festival, including a slice of apple pie or some apple crisp, apple pancakes, and of course the festival’s famous Danish specialty, aeble skivers. Apple cinnamon ice cream sundaes, a hit at last year’s event, are also on the menu while they last.
The Apple Festival also features handmade craft items, jewelry and bargains at “Grandma’s Attic” tag sale. There will be games and prizes for the children and “Apple Jenny” will be there to greet everyone at the door.
Profits from the sale of apple pies and the Apple Festival go to charity and outreach programs in the community. Bring the family for a fun and delicious day.
The festival happens rain or shine, and parking and admission are free. Dunbar United Church of Christ is located at the corner of Dunbar Hill Road and Benham Street in Hamden and is easily reached by turning onto Benham Street from Dixwell Avenue at the Home Depot Plaza.
