Finnriver Farm presents a World Apple Day event:|
Taste, Temptation and Spells: Apples in Folktales, Fairytales and Myth
An evening with Storyteller Brian Rohr
Saturday, October 19th 5-7pm
$12.50 ticket includes stories, cocktails and apple pastries.
This October 19th, in honor of World Apple Day, Finnriver Farm presents Taste, Temptation and Spells: Apples in Folktales, Fairytales and Myth - an evening of stories by local Storyteller Brian Rohr. In this performance, Rohr will explore the magic and mystery of the apple in the ancient tales. Be it tempting the first people with profound wisdom or the dark magic sometimes embedded in its tasty flesh, this seemingly innocent fruit has a darker and more complex (and delightful) history then the Pink Lady will often let on upon first meeting.
Story will go from 5:30-6:30pm. Please join us for cocktails and other apple delights, included in the entry price at 5pm before the stories start. This is a 21 and over event.
The event is held in the Finnriver outdoor pavilion so dress for all weather and we suggest you bring coats, hats and blankets in case of cool weather.
The story-telling event is the culmination of a day of free activities on the farm for World Apple Day, including apple experts, orchard tours, games, art projects, music and country dancers. The World Apple Day events are open to all ages from 11-4. Woodfire pizza, cider and wine will be available for purchase. Note: The storytelling from 5-7 is for adults only and is a ticketed event to ensure seating.
