Apple butter festival slated for Historic Roscoe Village


COSHOCTON, OH – Wood carvings, handmade furniture, pottery and rugs, and other items will be displayed at Historic Roscoe Village during the 32nd annual Apple Butter Stirrin’ Festival October 19-21.

Handmade items will also be sold from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

One artist of special interest is 11-year-old Carrie Ann Archer, called “a rare talent” by the Ohio Arts and Crafts Guild. Archer has been drawing since she was two years old and began painting with watercolors this past summer under the guidance of her grandmother, a long time craft vendor in Roscoe Village. She was recognized by the Noble County Performers Society as an outstanding artist.

Fun for all ages. The festival offers fun and entertainment for all ages with a craft show, demonstrations, special appearances by Johnny Appleseed, food booths and a variety of contests.

Entertainment throughout the weekend will feature the sounds of bluegrass, Appalachian folk, country and music of the 60s, 70s and 80s.

Saturday entertainment also includes the county-wide seventh and eighth grade spelling bee and the annual pumpkin decorating contest for children ages five to 15. Pumpkins and decorating items will be provided. No preregistration is required.

Sunday’s events include a pie-baking contest and the annual craft auction and quilt raffle. Tickets will be available throughout the weekend.
