The Annual Apple Festival
Dennis Union’s Apple Festival started in 2009 and has become a beloved feature of the fall season. Held the first Saturday in October, the Festival features apples in many forms.
More than 200 pies are baked in the church kitchens for sale and apple pies, apple squash soup and other desserts are available in the Festival cafe. Fresh apples are available for sale, and the boutique has apple preserves and other homemade treats and crafts.
Outside on the Village Green, local crafters have items for sale along with the annual wool show held by the Cape Cod Spinners Guild. The Grill serves hot dogs and baked beans, and children’s crafts and face painting are featured in the lower hall of the church.
A recent addition to the Festival is a Quilt Show, coordinated by the Activities Committee. Congregation members and friends exhibit antique quilts and more recent heirlooms in the sanctuary of the church, with volunteers on hand to share the stories and memories of the quilts.
