Join the Markham Museum’s salute to the wonderful apple Sept. 24 and 25 from 10am to 4pm.
The museum operates its own apple cider mill and offers fresh samples to visitors. Attendees will be able to stroll through the museum’s heritage apple orchard as children participate in a variety of hands-on activities. In addition, there will be several exhibitions, geocaching, great food, and music.
Entry into the event is $4 per person and children under two are free.
Mayor Frank Scarpitti said Applefest is a tradition to him and has been going with his family for many years.
“This event is a wonderful family tradition… I used to bring my own kids here when they were small, and they loved the apple cider and activities,” said Scarpitti.
Ward 4 Councillor Karen Rea said it’s a great opportunity for a family outing to experience something a little different and a great place for the kids to learn and experience new activities.
“Any festivals are great for the community as it brings everyone together,” Rea said. “It’s a great way to make new friends and get to know your neighbours.”
The museum is at 9350 Hwy. 48 (Markham Rd.).
