One of the most integral parts of the Delmont Apple ‘n Arts Festival (besides the fresh-pressed apple cider, hand-made crafts, delicious food vendors, and riveting entertainment) is the Fort Allen Antique Farm Equipment Association.

Each October, Fort Allen shares their passion with festival attendees. There are live demonstrations, tractors to view and of course they help operate the 1907 antique apple press – the only time of the year the press is active! Check out all Fort Allen has to offer at this year’s Delmont Apple ‘n Arts Festival. Wheat & Buckwheat flour & cornmeal will be ground on site and sold. Bags of Apple will be sold in the apple barn. They'll also have demonstrations of working antique gas engines, balers, an operating saw mill, and the Ye Olde Shingle Mill. Proceeds from the apples, cider, flour, corn meal, raffle tickets, Apple butter and Rada Cutlery all support the Fort Allen Antique Equipment Association and their continued education of antique equipment.

To learn more about their passion for historic farm equipment, you can join their 150 members and attend monthly meetings (the first Tuesday of every month at 7:30 pm). Visit their website: Home | Fort Allen Antique Farm Equipment Assoc. (
