Warwick Town Entrance Sign

THE VILLAGE WARWICK, in New York’s Hudson Valley, is a great combination of small town laid-back friendliness and proximity to New York City. Actually, even without a city nearby, there is enough to keep everyone busy, well-fed, clothed, healthy and happy - all right here. Warwick maintains over 100 acres of parklands, playing fields and hiking paths, as well as several museums and galleries. This is also the home of several cultural and recreation events such as the Summer Arts Festival, Summer Concert Series and, not least of all, the Applefest.

1989 was the first year the Applefest kicked off – at that time a simple harvest celebration to support the Warwick Valley Community Center. Since then, it has grown to become one of the ‘Top 100 Events’ in the country, with over 30,000 visitors attending. Usually taking place in early October, people come from all over (admission is free) to take in the music and entertainment, children’s carnival, artwork, farmer’s market, apple pie baking contest, craft and food vendors, and just enjoy the ambiance of the village streets. Many local non-profit exhibitors carry on the original purpose of fund raising for worthy causes as well.

So when the village decided it was time for a new sign, it made sense to have apples prominently displayed. Wishing for a hand-crafted look, they came to Danthonia for a dimensional sign with hand sculpted artwork. The lettering and groove accent were incise carved using hand chisels and gilded with 23kt gold leaf. Made of high density urethane, the sign looks and feels like wood, but will last much longer, since it is entirely waterproof, so it will be there to welcome visitors to Applefests for many years to come!
