Each fall, Dunwoody Preservation Trust brings the community together for Apple Cider Days at the Donaldson-Bannister Farm. This year, rain or shine, the afternoon will include activities for the family spread across the entire 2.89 acres of property.  We will have a petting zoo, children’s pioneer crafts, a self-guided apple scavenger hunt, a display of vintage farm tools and home goods, sponsor booth and an All-Things-Apple booth.  Dunwoody Chick-fil-A and Moondog Growlers will offer food and drink for purchase.

Each time slot will be limited to 100 people spread across the 2.89 acres of the Donaldson-Bannister Farm.  Online advance purchase tickets are recommended.  $5 per person, with children ages 2 and under free.  If tickets are still available the day of Apple Cider Days, on-site, event-day tickets are $10 per person with children ages 2 and under free.  Face masks are recommended and hand-sanitizing stations will be spread throughout the property. We will be abiding by the City of Dunwoody’s mask policy found here.
