Description

The Rotary Club of Winchester's Annual Apple Harvest Arts and Crafts Festival

Arts and crafts vendors, Ole Tyme Apple Growers Exhibit, food vendors, and more! Enjoy fall in apple country.

Items for sale are expected to include fine pencil drawings, hand spun Alpaca wool, hand-made jewelry and hand-blown glass.

The Kids Zone will be a busy place with members from the John Handley High School Rotaract Club manning the inflatables for children to play on. The Apple Theme Booth, will display dozens of varieties of locally grown apples, as well as samples to taste and an Apple Pie eating contest.  There will also be the Everything Virginia Booth, in which all the crafts for sale were made in Virginia.

Most importantly, this long-established annual event is expected to raise almost $20,000 again this year, to be distributed to local charities.

This year, the festival will host the Civil War 150 HistoryMobile, in conjunction with the 150th Anniversary of the Third Battle of Winchester.

The Civil War 150 HistoryMobile is an interactive “museum on wheels” housed in a 53’ expandable tractor-trailer. The exhibition inside the Virginia Civil War 150 HistoryMobile tells the story of the Civil War from multiple points of view and explores the profound impact of the Civil War on Virginia, the end of slavery, and the reunification of the nation.
