The Annual Long Island Apple Festival will be held on Sunday, September 24th, from 11 am to 4:30 pm at the Sherwood-Jayne Farm, 55 Old Post Road, in East Setauket.
The 18th century Sherwood-Jayne Farm retains its original apple orchard, where some of the trees are over 100 years old.
Various activities including old-fashioned games like apple relay races, tug-o-war, and apple-head doll making will be held.
The festival features open-hearth colonial cooking demonstrations, an apple pie baking contest (apply here) and pie auction and tours of the historic Sherwood-Jayne House.
Attendees can hike a nature trail and learn about the farm’s natural habitat with Seatuck Environmental Association.
There will be storytelling, pony rides, traditional music, an old-fashioned hay ride, sheep shearing, face painting and many other events for people of all ages. Visitors can also take a look inside the barn and learn about the various agrarian tools.
Some of these activities will have an additional charge.
The festival also features apples of all kinds, including apple pie, fresh apple cider, hot pretzels, apple cider donuts, homemade jams, fresh popcorn, corn on the cob and hot dogs. Colonial craftspeople will be on hand to demonstrate and sell their products.
This community event is sponsored by Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities, Homestead Arts and the Greater Port Jeff-Northern Brookhaven Arts Council.
Admission is $7 for adults, and $5 for seniors and children ages 2-12.
