The Huguenot Street Apple Festival will celebrate its 25th anniversary this Saturday, October 4 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Reformed Church of New Paltz. Enjoy all things apple, including fresh-baked pies, fritters and cider. A variety of apples from Dressel Farm will also be available.
Wander down Huguenot Street and listen to live music, browse through the wares of craft venders and watch a demonstration of apple butter being made over an open fire. For the young at heart, there will be pony rides, crafts and activities, as well as a pie-eating race to see who can devour a slice of delicious apple pie in the shortest amount of time without using his or her hands.
New this year to the festival will be a salsa-making contest. All are welcome to create a salsa entry (or entries) for sharing. Fairgoers will be invited to taste and judge the entries ($2 per tasting). Winners will be determined by popular vote. Entries should be brought to the church by 10 a.m. on the day of the festival and should include one quart of salsa for tasting, along with the appropriate accompaniment for tasting (pita, tortilla chips, crackers, apple slices, etc.).
