Festival Highlights

Every year in early October, the Salem Apple Butter Festival is held at Depot Park in downtown Salem, drawing young and old alike to watch apple butter being made in open copper kettles over slow burning wood fires. Our rapidly growing festival has become one of the area's most exciting and anticipated events.

In addition to the great selection of arts, crafts and foods, festival patrons can enjoy quilt and apple butter judging, talent contest finals, celebrity auction, auto show, bingo, and much more!

Founded in 1988, the annual Sam Warner 5K Run is a highly popular race with its flat terrain and crushed limestone surface through the country along the North Bend Trail. Its a 5 kilometer (3.2 mile) course that starts on the rail-trail across from East Resources Building on Flinderation Road, east of Salem. The race enters into downtown Salem and ends at  Railroad Street across from Salem Post Office.

In 1999, the  Salem Apple Butter Festival  5 K Race was renamed the SAM WARNER 5 K RUN in honor  of the late Sam Warner. Mr. Warner, a racing and  fitness advocate, served as chairman of the 5 K race  from 1990 until his death in the summer of 1999.
The 1999 Race featured the largest field (173 runners) and a new course record.

We strive to keep our event entry fees and vendor booth rates affordable to allow our vendors maximum profitability and keeping our special events within the reach of all festival visitors.  Our entertainment is open to the public and free of charge!  Our festival is funded by the generous support of our Sponsors, our booth vendors, some grants and our advertisers as well as by our contest registration fees.
