Apple Butter Stirrin’ Festival begins

| October 19, 2012

COSHOCTON – The Apple Butter Stirrin’ Festival in Historic Roscoe Village runs today through Sunday.

The three days of Apple Butter Stirrin’ features crafters and artisans who offer unique handmade items including paintings, pottery and home and garden goods. There also will be food, entertainment, kids’ activities, live demonstrations and a corn-shellin’ contest.

Roscoe Village is a restored canal town that flourished in the early 1800s as the Ohio and Erie Canal wound its way through Ohio, and many of the original buildings still stand along the original canal bed. Costumed interpreters spin the tales of the early 19th century, and a nearby canal boat offers a taste of life on the canal with its horse-drawn rides. 

During the festival, Civil War: On the Home Front tours also will be offered. Guests can visit the fully-staffed historical buildings at their leisure from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Friday and Saturday evening, the eerie candlelight tour, Spirit of Roscoe, will be offered at 7 p.m. This autumn tour walks the guests through the historic village while telling the tales of the spirited folk who once made this quaint canal town their home. Reservations are recommended for the candlelight tour.
