11th Annual Apple Days Apple Pressing & Festival
Join the Good Food Collective, Fenceline Cider, and The Ore House for the 11th Annual Apple Days Festival to celebrate our region’s apple abundance, feed our community, reduce waste and save the bears! To celebrate, we invite you to spend Saturday, 10/5 harvesting apples from backyard trees and orchards. On Sunday, 10/6, from 11am-4pm, come down to Buckley Park where you can press apples into fresh, local juice, listen to live music, each tasty treats, participate in the apple pie eating contest and enjoy a family-friendly afternoon out on the town.
This year, we are excited to offer a craft cider tasting hosted by local favorite, Fenceline Cider, featuring the micro-brews of cideries spanning from Mancos to Denver. Music includes the rocking tunes of the Stillwater bands, as well as, a feature performance by the High Country Hustle
