Lebanon Hosts 29th Annual Country Applefest September 24 2011!
It's that time of year again! Lebanon is ready to host the Country Applefest from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday September 24th! Any festival that runs 29 years MUST be doing something right, and these folks DO know how to do it right! One of the unique things for the Country Applefest? Vendors are limited to arts, crafts and food! No politics.....no soliciting, just have fun! And another UNIQUE requirement for that arts & crafts vendors? The vendor MUST have made what they're selling personally! No imports from China here, EVERYTHING is handcrafted!
Now of course the Country Applefest is about more than vendors selling to you! There will be live entertainment set up at Bicentennial Park gazebo (Mulberry & Cherry), another stage at Broadway & Mulberry, AND strolling entertainers too (Tears the Clown with Balloon art, Dirty Dealin' Dave with his Magic Act, Casey Redmon with some musical fun, and even a Barbershop Quartet, the Double Nickell Band!
And on the stages, there's a bit of everything! Music (Lebanon City Schools Orchestra, Christian Contemporary, Country, Blues), performers (belly dancers, Celtic, clogging) and more....get the idea that there really IS something for everyone??
And what's a Country Applefest without APPLES?? We're talking thousands of Apple Fritters, thousands of Apple Pies, who knows how many caramel and fudge dipped apples?? Apple donuts too! And do you think there MIGHT be some apple cider on the premises??
And why not have an Apple Bake-off while we're at it! Last year's theme was Apple Bread, this year it's Apple Cobbler!
Now you can expect some crowds, and obviously the better part of Historic Downtown Lebanon will be shut down to traffic so everyone can have a great time!
Parking will be available at the four municipal lots (Sycamore St. between Silver & West Mulberry AND behind Golden Lamb, the intersection of W. Main & St. Rt 63 and Mechanic St. behind City Hall) OR you can park at Sweeney-Wallace Chrysler Dodge Jeep and ride the free shuttle.
And just in case you were thinking about bringing your pet to the Country Applefest, sorry, but that's not allowed unless you have a service animal.
