Applebutter Fest

What is Applebutter Fest? It's historical reenactments, pioneer demonstrations, crafts, live music, food, and family fun along the beautiful Maumee River!


Lots of applebutter and plenty of down-home, old fashioned memories for tens of thousands of visitors to the scenic Victorian Canal Town, Grand Rapids. Applebutter is the main feature with three 50 gallon copper kettles being cooked in the village park by the restored Town Hall.


There are no participation fees other than a $15 per vehicle parking fee that provides the operating funds for the Fest. Parking in the official lots is sincerely appreciated! Please review the village traffic restrictions and parking availability.
