Apple Dumpling Sale

Date(s): 10/09/2020
Time: 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Apple Dumplings—those tasty apples wrapped in pastry and covered in sweet cinnamon syrup, created by Achenbach’s Bakery, are returning once again to benefit the Ephrata Cloister’s educational programming.  However, in the era of social distancing and mask-wearing, they will only be available by advance order with a drive-through pick-up. Proceeds from the sale of these apple dumplings benefit the educational programming of Ephrata Cloister Historic Site and Museum, serving the Lancaster County, Pennsylvania Community; local schools and home-school groups; and tourists from around the world.  Ephrata Cloister Associates are a non-profit support group of the Historic Ephrata Cloister.
