Mark your calendars for Mill Neck Manor’s Annual Apple Festival, on Saturday, Oct. 7 and Sunday, Oct. 8. Enjoy a weekend of fall festivities you won’t want to miss.
Located on the breathtaking 86-acre Mill Neck Manor campus, this beloved festival has become a cherished tradition for both locals and visitors from near and far. Drawing tens of thousands of attendees each year, the Apple Festival holds a special place in the hearts of many, particularly Mill Neck Manor alumni and the Long Island Deaf community who consider it an annual “homecoming.”
This year’s Apple Festival promises to capture the essence of the fall season, with opportunities to indulge in a wide variety of delicious apples, savor Karl Ehmer specialty meats, enjoy grilled bratwurst, an array of cheeses, and indulge in mouth-watering baked goods, jellies, fudge, strudel, and much more. But the festival is not just about the food! Visitors can explore the plethora of vendors with handmade quality country crafts, apparel, woodworking products, jewelry, the latest in Deaf technology, and much more!
The festival is pleased to offer craft beer, wine and spirits for purchase, adding another layer of enjoyment for our adult attendees. Families can also expect a festive pumpkin patch and a host of kid-friendly activities to keep the little ones entertained all day long. And let’s not forget the exciting live entertainment lineup, featuring talented musicians, engaging children’s entertainment, ASL classes, pie eating contests, and so much more to keep the festive spirit alive throughout the weekend. American Sign Language/English interpreters will be provided for all performances to ensure language accessibility for all.
