West Haven Apple Festival


Dear Friends:


2020 has presented many unique challenges for each of us. Although businesses and recreational areas are slowly beginning to reopen, we must continue to monitor the situation with COVID-19 and take steps to protect one another.


The Apple Festival is one of West Haven’s largest community events. It is a weekend of food, entertainment and fellowship. The volunteers of the First Congregational Church and outside organizations look forward to putting on the Festival each year; to see so many happy faces over the weekend. Unfortunately, given the uncertainty of what the Fall might bring, the decision has been made to cancel the Apple Festival this year.  Please know that this decision was not made lightly. We are sensitive to the fact that many organizations rely on the Apple Festival for donations, and that our crafters and vendors count on the income generated from the Festival. Yet, our primary Christian responsibility is to ensure the health and safety of our volunteers, vendors, entertainers and patrons.


We hope you all stay safe and healthy, and look forward to a great Apple Festival in 2021!


With blessings,


First Congregational Church of West Haven

Apple Festival Committee



The West Haven Apple Festival is our largest event; this annual festival began when church members wanted to expand the church fall fair into an event that would bring the community together and raise funds for the church.  Now more than 15 festivals later, the Apple Festival is a fixture of fall in West Haven and raises money to not only support the church but many community organizations such as W.H.E.A.T., West Haven Animal Shelter, Project HOPE, West Haven Family Resource Center, Boy Scouts, Fisher House, and various student groups from West Haven High School.
