Apples and Honey Festival returns to San Luis Obispo Sunday
–The Jewish Community Center Federation of San Luis Obispo announces its 4th Annual Apples and Honey Festival this Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Mitchell Park in downtown SLO. The event is free and open to all.
The Apples and Honey Festival is a great way for the community to celebrate the harvest season. Local artisans and food vendors will be at the park, along with apple games and crafting for the kids. The JCC will host a demonstration booth for apple paring techniques and more, plus local beekeepers will be on hand to talk about the importance of bees. Apple games and crafting is generously made possible by our festival apple vendor, Gopher Glen Apple Farm.
The Apples and Honey Festival is also a fun, special way to learn about the Jewish new year with the community. There’s a horn blowing contest and a chance to dip an apple into honey – the sweet tradition of the Jewish new year.
New this year is an apple pie baking contest and tasting: Enter into the contest at www.jccslo.com/apple. The festival is family-friendly and hosts over 50 vendors including:
