We are the proud sponsor of the Applebutter Fest and its living history experience held the 2nd Sunday in October each year.
Historical re-enactments, pioneer demonstrations, crafts, music, food, and family fun along the beautiful Maumee River in the scenic canal town of Grand Rapids Ohio.
Join us for the 38th annual festival on Sunday, October 12th, 2014.
Grand Rapids Ohio is a village of fewer than 1,000 people on one square mile of land located on the Maumee River southwest of Toledo.
Grand Rapids is a Mecca for those in search of quiet. Please visit our picturesque village with architecturally significant homes, quaint shops offering everything from antiques to myriad glass jars filled with candy, from beautiful floral arrangements to a vast collection of used books, from boutique clothing to original art works. Dine at one of our restaurants, enjoy homemade ice cream at the local ice cream eatery, or stay at a world-class spa or one of our historic bed and breakfasts. We look forward to seeing you!
