Food, music, scavenger hunt on tap at Shoreham Apple Festival

SHOREHAM — The eighth annual Apple Fest will be held on Sunday, Sept. 18, at the Shoreham town green and gazebo from noon-4 p.m. Delicious food, live music, an apple pie contest, a farmers’ market, a bounce house, children’s activities and a Selfie Scavenger Hunt will be featured at the afternoon-long event. Apple Fest is an annual fall fundraiser for the Friends of the Platt Memorial Library and is a public event open to all.
Special to this year’s Apple Fest is the addition of an Apple Fest Selfie Scavenger Hunt. Teams and individuals will form from around the community to take selfie photos that capture the essence of Shoreham and everything apple!
Participants who complete the contest will have their names entered to win a grand prize. Information about entrance fees, enrollment forms and contest rules are available at the library or online at www.plattlib.org.
The library will offer for sale a lunch of pulled pork sandwiches with slaw, macaroni and cheese, apple desserts and cider. Entertainment will be provided by the traditional Irish music band Extra Stout. Farmers market vendors will be selling fresh vegetables and apples, bottles of locally produced hard and ice cider, locally bottled spirits, cheeses, eggs, farm raised meat, honey, maple products, jams, jellies and handmade arts and crafts. Relax and enjoy a glass of hard or fresh sweet cider at the spirits garden!
Enter a pie in the “Best Apple Pie” contest. There will be two entry categories: youth (under the age of 16) and adults (16 and older). Individuals or teams are encouraged to enter. Contest rules, entry forms and information about prizes can be found at Shoreham’s Platt Memorial Library, orchards throughout Addison County, or downloaded at www.plattlib.org.
