Marldon Apple Pie Fair

Where: Marldon, Devon at the Jubilee Meadow
When: Last Saturday in July
Time: From 11.30

 

Marldon hosts a typical English village fete each July, with sports, crafts, competitions and entertainments. The unique aspect of this event is the Apple Pie Princess with her donkey-powered  giant-apple-pie cart. The origins of the event lie in the nineteenth century, when local trader George Hill used to provide a huge apple pie for the church fete, delivered by donkey-cart; the current fair is a long-standing revival, now itself nearly half a century old. The fair is officially opened at 2pm by the Apple Pie Princess and a celebrity, and they cut the apple pie to sell with clotted cream. Yum!

Helpful Hints
