MONROE, CT — St. Peter’s Grace Episcopal Church’s annual Apple Festival is coming back to the green at the corner of Route 111 and Fan Hill Road this weekend.
“The whole parish is thrilled to once again be hosting the Apple Festival,” The Rev. Derek J. Stefanovsky said. “Volunteers have been busy organizing for this year since last September, building upon many, many successful years. As always, we are glad to host this family friendly festival as we usher in the fall season, and to provide a wonderful community event for the town of Monroe and beyond.”
The popular event features over a hundred craft vendors, a food tent, Apple Central with apples, apple cider and apple themed items for purchase; and Country Kitchen with homemade baked goods from apple pies and caramel apples to hot apple crisp a la mode.
There will also be live music, a fall mum sale and raffle prizes.
The Apple Festival will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Admission and parking is free.
St. Peter’s was established as a mission of St. Paul’s Church, Huntington over 200 years ago. Construction on the church building at 175 Old Tannery Road began in 1802, and it was consecrated by the Bishop of Connecticut in 1807, according to Stefanovsky.
Last fall, St. Peter’s Episcopal Church merged with Grace Episcopal Church, Trumbull to form St. Peter’s Grace Episcopal Church.
