Olde Tyme Apple Festival
The Annual Olde Tyme Apple Festival is an award-winning festival enjoyed by thousands of festival-goers from all over the state and beyond. Starting with the first apple festival in 1980, the crowds have increased yearly and generally reach about 30,000 apple lovers that come to shop the hundreds of booths in the arts and crafts fair held around the town square.
