The 48th Steilacoom Apple Squeeze returns on Sunday, October 1st from 10-4. Sponsored by the Steilacoom Historical Museum Association, this family event celebrates the apple. 

Press apples into cider the old-fashioned way with hand operated presses. The number of press operators may be small so quantities may be limited. Already pressed cider by the gallon will also be available. 

Student clubs from the Steilacoom High School will offer activities for children in the tennis court area. Stroll through the street fair featuring quality handcrafts and booths. Enjoy an apple cider float, apple fritters, apple pie with ice cream or other great food. 

Live music by Kristi and Steve Nebel and Dave Harmonson will be heard all day.
Sponsored by the Steilacoom Historical Museum. Call 253-584-4133 for more information. 

Food and craft vendors are vetted and applications sent out if approved. There are no online applications. Contact Marianne Bull at
