Killerton apple festival
Join in the celebration of National Apple Day at this unique family festival which takes place in Sparrow Park Orchard, Killerton.
Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 October, 10am-5pm
As the last apples are collected, the National Trust invites visitors to attend the Killerton Apple festival, this year taking place on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 October, tucked in amongst the apple trees.
To tie in with Killertons 2019 celebration of trees and woodlands with the centenary of the Forestry Commission, the festival will be celebrating orchards from the fruit down to the roots. It’s a chance to celebrate fruit trees and the harvest, enjoy cider and apple juice and raise awareness of the conservation of traditional orchards.
A wonderful family favourite, this year the festival will feature children’s activities and entertainment shows, craft workshops, family trails and live music. Visitors can bring their own apples to press into juice, witness the 200 year old press in action, try archery, browse the stalls in the orchard and taste great food from the Killerton estate. Visitor can also enjoy meeting a variety of organisations that are striving to look after woodlands and wildlife in the UK.
