Popular Apple Harvest Festival returns Sept. 17

PHIS PASTERIS/TIGARD HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION - A modern-day child watches a 'grandma' use an old-fashioned apple-peeler at a previous Apple Harvest Festival at the John Tigard House in Tigard.The Tigard Historical Association is inviting the public to step back into the 1880s at its annual Apple Harvest Festival on Saturday, Sept. 17, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the historic John Tigard House.

Amelia Endorf will be on hand to evaluate quilts, and her daughter, Elsa, will be there as well to demonstrate the art of spinning. The Tigard Quilters will also be showcasing their handiwork.

There will be old-fashioned games and crafts for the kids, plus a photo booth where families can dress up in period costumes. In addition, there will be the ever-popular apple press and apple peeler onsite, for hands-on use by kids.

And what’s an apple harvest festival without apple pie? Pieces of Davidson’s apple pie a la mode will be sold for the old-fashioned price of 50 cents per slice.

The John Tigard House is located at the corner of Southwest 103rd Avenue and Canterbury Lane in Tigard, across from Calvin Presbyterian Church. Admission is free, but donations will be gladly accepted.
