Currently the 2020 Apple Butter Festival is in a Wait and See Status. We have been sending out in past years the vendor packets in early July. For now we are going to wait until later in the summer to determine if this years festival will be possible with the regulations regarding mass gatherings due to Covid-19. If the current regulations do not change it will not be possible to hold a Festival this year. Updates will be put on this page.
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. Our 2020 Festival is tentatively scheduled for Saturday October 17 from 9 AM to 3 PM.
