49th Annual Apple Butter Stirrin’ Festival

The Annual Apple Butter Stirrin’ Festival is a three-day festival, taking place in Historic Roscoe Village, an 1800s restored canal town. Now in its 49th year, the festival will take place on October 19, 20, and 21. Enjoy over 100 craft and food vendors, presenting handcrafted items and delicious foods. Listen to musical performances by traditional dulcimer players, bluegrass bands, and gospel singers. Sample the sweet taste of homemade apple butter simmering over an open fire. This family friendly event offers hands-on activities, strolling characters and charming retail shops with an array of gifts including Ohio made and village artisans’ hand-crafted products. Admission to the festival is $5 for ages twelve and over. The nearby canal boat offers a taste of life on the canal with its horse-drawn boat rides. After the festival, the eerie candlelit tour, Spirit of Roscoe, will be offered at 7:00pm on Friday and Saturday at the cost of $12.95 for adults and $6.95 for children (reservations are required).

This year the open house will be dedicated to the memory of Ann who departed her earthly garden Thanksgiving eve. She will long be remembered for her grace and beauty as well as warmth and ever present friendly smile. Her passion for the gardens and sharing them with others is who she was. The peace, harmony and serenity you will experience is a gift from her and her spirituality which was evident to all who had the pleasure of making her acquaintance.

Reservations are not required, however, advance notice of groups arriving by bus would be appreciated. The Gardens are rarely open to the public, and this Open House represents the only opportunity this year to visit and enjoy this remarkable site.
Schnormeier Gardens, located in the gentle rolling hills of Gambier, Ohio, began in 1996. Over the years they have grown to include seventy-five acres of manicured lawns, ten lakes, a variety of discrete garden areas and several waterfalls.
The focal point of the property is a spectacular Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired home. This private residence was completed in 1994. The interior of the home is not part of the public tour. Other structures on the property include a Japanese teahouse, garden house, Chinese pavilion and arched bridge. Ever-growing collections of unique sculptures are also located on the grounds.
The gardens have a distinct Asian flavor and feature a variety of plantings rich in color and texture. Rare conifers are plentiful here. Large boulders and stonewalls add dimension and contrast to the landscape. Designed with a bold vision and attention to detail, the gardens offer delightful viewing in any season.
Tours are self-guided. The property is hilly, and contains manicured lawns, woods, meadows, streams, lakes, footbridges and many beautiful vistas. There are no paved or designated pathways so visitors are encouraged to dress comfortably and to wear walking shoes. Visitors are free to wander the entire 75 acres. Those attending the Open House should start at the Welcome Center, at 8701 Laymon Road. The Welcome Center features a DVD presentation, striking photographs of the Gardens, including aerial photograph, and full-color tour brochures with map. Restrooms are available at the Welcome Center and near the Hosta Garden.
You are welcome to take photographs.
The Gardens are not recommended for those with limited mobility. While we love pets, this is not an appropriate venue for them. So please, leave them home.
ATTENTION: Once again THE GALLERY will be open to our visitors. THE GALLERY is located on the ground level of the Schnormeier residence and features a variety of regional artists.
