Apple with a view at Boscobel

Boscobel House and Gardens will host its Heritage Applefest, featuring live music, sweet and hard cider sampling, press-your-own cider and family games and activities, on October 6, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. In addition to sweet and hard cider, apple cider doughnuts, butter and syrup will be available for purchase from local vendors.

Applefest celebrates the agricultural history of the Hudson Valley and Boscobel, which was constructed in the early 19th century, when the apple was America’s favorite fruit. Boscobel’s apple orchard still features some of those heritage varieties as well as many newer ones.

During the festivities, the Historic House Museum will be open for visitors to explore at their own pace and direction, with expert guides stationed to offer insight and information.

Cost: Pay what you wish. Location: 1061 Rte. 9D, Garrison, NY. Rain date: October 13. For more information, call 845.265.3638 or visit Boscobel.org.
