Since 2007, the Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District (THPRD) has sponsored our local celebration of food, music, and history on the grounds of the historic JQA Young House on Cornell near 119th.

We are delighted to bring back our community celebration. See how the pioneers made cider with antique, hand-cranked presses, and sample the results. Boy Scout Troop 208 looks forward every year to running the antique presses to turn out free fresh cider from 1000 lbs. of apples, donated by Market of Choice. Grab a glass or two, you'll be amazed at the taste!

Listen to the folk, bluegrass and old-time music of Lauren Sheehan and her String Band. Enjoy a delicious BBQ lunch.
