The Mill Neck Family of Organizations is thrilled to announce that its Annual Apple Festival will be held on Saturday, October 7th and Sunday, October 8th, from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM.
The excitement is building, as the 2023 festival promises to be bigger and better than ever. Located on Mill Neck Manor’s 86-acre campus, the Apple Festival draws tens of thousands of visitors who return year after year to enjoy this long celebrated tradition. Mill Neck Manor alumni also attend the Apple Festival as an annual “homecoming,” with the event bringing the heart of the Long Island Deaf Community together.
The 2023 Apple Festival will bring the best of the fall season to Long Island; showcasing an assortment of apple varieties, Karl Ehmer specialty meats, grilled bratwurst, a wide variety of cheeses, and plenty of mouth-watering baked goods, jellies, fudge, strudel, and more. The festival also showcases the latest in Deaf technology, healthcare checkups, children’s face painting, handmade country crafts, American Sign Language books/novelty items, and a pumpkin patch.
Other exciting additions that visitors can expect from this year’s festival include craft beer, wine and spirits for purchase, and plenty of activities for the kids. A schedule of live entertainment is also in store, featuring a lineup of musicians, children’s entertainment, ASL classes, pie eating contests, and much more throughout the weekend.
Mill Neck Family of Organizations is dedicated to creating a world in which Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing individuals are included, empowered, celebrated and embraced as equals through quality educational, employment, audiological and spiritual programs and services.
