A huge thank you to the event sponsor K-Rock 89.3 and to all who participated in the Blossom Brew Night which took place May 28th. This event raised $1824.60 to support the Apple Blossom Festival.

Apple Blossom Board Looks for help to keep Festival going

The Annapolis Valley Apple Blossom Festival runs annually the last weekend of May and has been doing so for 83 years, this year being their 84th. With 84 years of festival comes 84 years of tradition and agricultural heritage.


Unfortunately, the Apple Blossom Festival has run into some issues where funding and volunteers are lacking. It takes thousands of sponsorship dollars to plan, organize and implement the 6 very busy days of festival, and a board of 12 very dedicated volunteers do their best to make it all possible. The festival is rolling on but donations are needed to keep it going. (more…)
