One of the most integral parts of the Delmont Apple ‘n Arts Festival (besides the fresh-pressed apple cider, hand-made crafts, delicious food vendors, and riveting entertainment) is the Fort Allen Antique Farm Equipment Association.
Better known around Delmont as “Fort Allen”, their Association’s purpose is to preserve and restore antique farm equipment.
To learn more about their passion for historic farm equipment, you can join their 150 members and attend monthly meetings (the first Tuesday of every month at 8pm). Visit their website: Home | Fort Allen Antique Farm Equipment Assoc. (faafea.org)
You can get in touch with Fort Allen by filling out this contact form.
Each October, Fort Allen shares their passion with festival attendees. There are live demonstrations, tractors to view, a tractor raffle, and of course they help operate the 1907 antique apple press – the only time of the year the press is active! Check out all Fort Allen has to offer at this year’s Delmont Apple ‘n Arts Festival.
