Apple Festival at Pere Marquette Lodge

Warm apple pie, hand-dipped caramel apples, handmade crafts, live music and fresh produce are just a few of the offerings at the Apple Festival at Pere Marquette. The festivities will also include apple wine tasting, kid’s activities and restaurant favorites.  An apple pie walk (similar to a cake walk) will be held at 12:30pm where visitors will purchase tickets and take a walk for a chance to take home a fresh baked apple pie.  Proceeds for the apple pie walk will be donated to the Friends of Pere Marquette Foundation. The Lodge will also host the Fifth Annual Pumpkin Roll at 2pm.  Participants can bring their own pumpkin or purchase one at the festival to decorate for a competitive roll down the hill in front of the Lodge. Second and third place participants will win gift certificates for the Restaurant and the fastest pumpkin will win the grand prize of a free nights stay at the historic Lodge.

For more information, call (618) 786-2331.
