Join the Shaker Historical Society on Saturday, September 28 from 12-4pm for AppleFest, a family-friendly fall festival. Best of all, its free! AppleFest is a historical event for SHS, held annually from 1989-1998 on museum grounds that were once home to the Shaker's apple orchards.

All ages are welcome to attend! Donations are welcome to support this community event.




Shaker Historical Society is located at:

16740 South Park Blvd.

Shaker Heights, OH 44120

We encourage visitors to walk, bike, or use the RTA (using the Shaker Blvd/Lee Rd stop) to attend AppleFest.

If you are driving, parking is available on the north side of South Park Blvd (across the street from the museum). The parking lot behind the museum will be closed to cars and only used for vendors and activities the duration of the event. If you require handicap parking or accommodations, please contact before Thursday, September 26  so we can ensure a smooth visit!


We are seeking community volunteers for AppleFest to assist with event set-up, activities during the event, and event clean-up. A volunteer sign-up form will be available soon, and SHS staff will be in touch to coordinate your participation. Thank you!

Please note, all volunteers will have to sign a Volunteer Waiver and Release Form and an Emergency Contact Form. Volunteers must be age 14+. Volunteers who are minors will need a parent/guardian to complete their Waiver and Release Form. 


Sponsorship opportunities are available! Please contact for more information.
