Apple Butter Makin' Days
For more than five decades, apple butter has been made in large copper kettles on the Courthouse lawn all during the festival. Children enjoy the KidZone area with jump houses, games, inflatables, and fun. We have a wonderful parade, wiener dog races, a variety of contests, a pet parade, car show, and live entertainment all three days. Visitors enjoy fair food, games, crafts, demonstrations and, of course, apple butter. Parking and attendance are FREE!
