Abingdon Harvest Festival
Holston Mountain Artisans, 10:00 AM-4:00 PM
Bring your whole family to enjoy our annual Harvest Festival, featuring apple butter stirring and apple cider pressing, and take home some goodies! Artisans will be demonstrating their crafts as well.
Members will stir off delicious apple butter the traditional way in a copper kettle over a wood fire while sweet and tangy apple cider pours out of the apple press. Bring your own apples and our volunteers will press them for homemade apple cider that you can take home and enjoy.
