Apple Butter Festival

Apple Butter Festival

Description:  Come to Skyland as the staff sets up the copper kettles and stokes up the fire for a day of apple boiling. Watch the process, give the kettle a stir, try a delicious sample, and take home some fresh-from-the-kettle jars of apple butter!

Our chefs will be creating a great menu of items such as Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich with Apple Spiced BBQ Sauce, Hot Dog with Apple Relish, Hamburgers and Cheeseburgers, Smoked Pepper Chili & Cornbread, Cole Slaw, Baked Apples, Baked Beans, Apple Cobbler à la Mode, Apple Turnovers, Apple Strudel, Funnel Cakes, and Hot and Cold Apple Cider.

Wine tasting, hard cider by the glass, pony rides, children’s crafts, and live entertainment are also featured throughout the day!

Stay at Skyland (mile 41.7 & 42.5) for convenient, in-park lodging closest to the activities! Or, there's also Big Meadows Lodge (mile 51) not too far down Skyline Drive. But, book now, because rooms fill fast!


Location: Shenandoah National Park, 3655 US Highway 211 East, Luray
