We are very sorry to have to make this announcement. After meeting and discussing the current Covid-19 situation with all of our Apple Butter Festival leading staff, it was the unanimous conclusion that the present mass gathering restrictions and other regulations make it impossible to hold our Fall Apple Butter Festival in 2020. We have set the date for the Apple Butter Festival to return next year to WPBC on Saturday October 16, 2021.

In October West Portland Baptist Church hosts our annual Apple Butter Festival with over 40 vendors on site (including food) and fresh cooked apple butter available for donation. The profit the church would make is fully donated to the Brocton/Portland Food Pantry. The pantry is located on the church campus but is a separate 501(c)3 ministry run by the local Brocton/Portland Ministerial Association.  The 2019 festival was our 6th and we raised over $3200.00 for the work of the food pantry. On a beautiful fall day we had an estimated crowd of over 1500 attend.
