This weekend marks the 47th annual Apple Butter Festival at Hueston Woods State Park.

Steve Flee, festival coordinator, said the festival will have something for everyone. One of the main events will be the baking of apple butter, which festival attendees will have the chance to help churn. Other events include pioneer crafters, Hueston Woods naturalists and a performance by the Southern Singer Drum Group.

All proceeds from the festival benefit the Oxford Museum Association.

Admission is $2 for adults and children younger than 12 are free. The festival is at the Pioneer Farm adjacent to the golf course at Hueston Woods. Flee said the festival has had good attendance from parents in the past.

“It’s nice because not everyone wants to go to the football game,” Flee said. “We’re still open after the football game, so if people want to go they can and then come see us.”

The festival will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 2 and Sunday, Oct. 3 rain or shine.
