Wade’s Mill Apple Butter Festival is a fun family day out and wonderful way to celebrate fall in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley!

Come see apple butter made the old-fashioned way, slow simmered in a 130+ year old copper pot over an open fire. Take a turn stirring with the long-handled paddle and take home a fresh jar.

Enjoy delicious food from local vendors, beer, cider and wine, plus country and bluegrass music. Shop for unique, handcrafted work and gifts by local artisans and crafts people. Visit the Mill Shop and stock up on 100% natural stone-ground flours, grits, cornmeal and mixes for your fall baking needs.

Arrive early, bring a blanket or lawn chair for the music and stay all day so you don’t miss out! A scenic 10-minute drive from I81 Exit 205 or 200. Admission and parking are FREE.
