Welcome to the Huron Township Applefest

Visit us October 4th and 5th for this year’s Applefest!

Applefest Hours are: Saturday 9am – 8pm, Sunday 10am – 6pm

I want to welcome all of you to the 35th Annual Apple Festival. The Applefest Committee meets throughout the year to plan and improve the festival. The goal for our volunteers is to put on a community event that showcases the friendly spirit within our area. We know you will find your visit to the Applefest a great family event.

Applefest volunteers work endless hours throughout the year on Applefest duties. The township residents also catch Applefest fever in the fall and begin sprucing up the town. We welcome our out of town guests and vendors and thank you for choosing to participate.

I want to recognize the tremendous cooperation of our residents and local business community along Huron River Drive-Downtown New Boston. Each Applefest they have to change their normal way of doing things to allow the Applefestival to be successful. We are always grateful for their contribution.

Finally, I want to thank our local Huron Township Officials and the Department of Public Works for their continued support. Because of their cooperation and support, the Applefest continues to be one of the regions most successful festivals.

Please Enjoy Applefest 2014!

Michael Glaab
Apple Festival Chairman
