Thank you Burlington and area for making Applefest Fall Fair a HUGE SUCCESS!!!

Cathy and Tanya Rocca and the entire Rocca Sisters & Associates’ team would like to thank everyone who came out to the Museums of Burlington’s Applefest Fall Fair this past Sunday, Sept. 28. We were once again the proud Presenting Sponsors of this local community event that was held on the grounds of the historic Ireland House at Oakridge Farm in Burlington.

The event was a huge success and attracted roughly 5,000 visitors from near and far. The weather could not have been more perfect and we were pleased to have the opportunity to spend such a beautiful fall day with so many families from our community and enjoy the spirit of the season.

Admission was free compliments of the Rocca Sisters & Associates as a thank you to our community for all the support we receive each year. We are proud of our relationships with our community; it’s what drives our continued success and commitment to giving back.

On Sunday, families were treated to a full day of Fall Fair fun that included pony rides, a hay maze, fair-style games, scarecrow making, live entertainment, animal exhibits, artisan demonstrations, tours through historic Ireland House, children’s crafts and more. We even crowned this year’s Applefest Prince & Princess!

We would also like to thank our local media partners for coming out to cover this fantastic event.

All proceeds raised from the event will go towards the Museum of Burlington’s educational programs and preservation of the historic collection.

This weekend on Sunday, September 28th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., join the Rocca Sisters & Associates at Ireland House at Oakridge Farm (2168 Guelph Line) to celebrate the Museum of Burlington’s Applefest Fall Fair, an old-fashioned fall fair right in the city. As presenting sponsors of this amazing local community event, we are pleased to once again offer FREE admission to all who attend as a way to say “Thank you” to our incredible community for all the support you show us throughout the year and for making us the #1 Sales Team in Burlington for a fourth consecutive year (2010-2013)!

From 9 a.m. – 11 a.m., enjoy an outdoor pancake breakfast to start the day off right. Then, starting at 11 a.m., take part in all of the fun-filled activities the day has to offer including apple cider making, junior farmer competitions, blacksmith demonstrations, tours through historic Ireland House, children’s games, crafts, face painting and more. The day also includes live entertainment on stage, learning how to milk a cow with the Dairy Farmers of Ontario, and shopping with local vendors and artisans.

Of course, a fall fair wouldn’t be complete without fall harvest treats like country BBQ, chilli dogs, pulled pork, delicious apple tarts, apple pie and more.

Be sure to sign your children up for their chance to be crowned this year’s Applefest Fall Fair Prince & Princess at 1 p.m. The pageant is open for children 6 to 10 years old.

Applefest is a great way to spend time with family, get to know your neighbours and meet new friends while helping to support our community’s cultural landmarks along the way.  Stop by the Rocca Sisters & Associates’ tent to say “Hi!” and receive a free children’s goodie bag, as well as an extra treat for children located at our tables.

So come and celebrate the harvest season with the Rocca Sisters & Associates and the Museums of Burlington! Proceeds from this event go towards the Museum of Burlington’s educational programs and preservation of the historic collection.
