Marldon Apple Pie Fair

About Us

The Marldon Apple Pie Fair has been going since 1888 in memory of local farmer, George Hill, who would use his windfall apples to bake an enormous apple pie for the village. Nowadays, locals and visitors alike join in the celebrations. Events throughout the afternoon include local arts, crafts and food stands, falconry displays, games and even a novelty dog show!

The event draws together members of village organisations and residents of Marldon, Compton and Westerland in a combined effort to produce the Apple Pie Fair. The sale of apple pie and cream is a feature and attractions include various arena events, an exhibition of craft activities and the work of local artists in a large marquee, plus numerous sideshows and stalls. The opening ceremony includes the official crowning of the Apple Pie Fair Princess (with her Attendants, chosen by ballot from children in their last year at Marldon Primary School. The Opener, helped by the Princess and her Attendants, then cuts the Apple Pie, which is sold with clotted cream, as are the small pies, by the ladies of the W.I. We have always been very fortunate in that a long list of celebrities (local, national and international) have given freely of their time to crown our Princess, and officially open the Fair. 

The main organisation of the Fair is done by an ad hoc Sub-Committee of the Village Hall Council but it relies heavily on the help and support given by so many. The profits of the Fair help to keep the Village Hall in "apple pie order" and it also gives all village organisations a first class opportunity to raise money for themselves.
