Apple Scrapple organizers prepare to bring back the annual festival

BRIDGEVILLE, Del. – The annual Apple Scrapple Festival is making its return and organizers are gearing up for two days of fun, food, and community.

Apple Scrapple organizers tell us, the festival brings the town to life in the fall, and it’s been two years since they’ve been able to gather for the event.

The layout of the festival hasn’t changed, but they have given the food court a large space to practice social distancing. We’re also told the red school house craft show is still happening, but vendors will not be in the hallways to allow for social distancing.

There will still be bus rides, free parking, the little miss apple scrapple pageant, music, games, rides, and plenty of scrapple.

Karen Johnson, Executive chair of the Apple Scrapple festival tells 47 ABC, they missed the event and what it brings to the community. “But what it really does is just makes everyone in Western Sussex love what our community stands for and for us it’s celebrating our Ag businesses.” She adds, “So we just hope everyone comes together, works together, and feels comfortable during our festival.”

Johnson also tells us, they are following CDC guidelines, so you must wear a mask if on a bus and when you are unable to social distance, it’s recommended to wear a mask.

The schedule of events and information will be on their website.
