    Event Summary

    National Apple Day, traditionally held on or around 21st October, was launched in 1990 by Common Ground. Ely has been joining in with the celebrations since 2000 and the event has now become one of the best loved apple festivals in the area. The festival provides interest and intrigue whether you are interested in the educational, environmental or simply fun angle of the day.

    Our experts from East of England Apples and Orchard Project will once again be in attendance to identify any apples that you wish to bring along. It is easier to identify if you can bring part of the stalk and/or leaf as well as the actual apple. So, if you have been mystified as to what kind of apples have been growing in your garden all these years, now is the time to find out.

    There will be several competitions, demonstrations, birds of prey, Morris dancing, storytelling and activities running throughout the day including the ever-popular longest apple peeling competition, apple and spoon races and apply shy. Yes we pun a lot on apples!

    Watergull Orchards, who kindly supply all our apples and bottles of juice for the various competitions, will be on hand to talk you through over 25 varieties of apples as well as over 10 varieties of juice and cider. As you might expect, all our food vendors have an apple twist so from apple teas to pork and apple sausages you can expect a wide variety of apple related culinary delights.

    We hope to see you there.
