Lebanon Hosts 31st Annual Country Applefest September 28 2013
It's almost here, one of Lebanon's BIG events, the Country Applefest! Now assuming you've recovered from this weekend's Oktoberfest in downtown Cincinnati, you want to mark your calendars for Saturday September 28th and head to downtown Lebanon for apples in MANY forms and types. You'll feel like Bubba from Forrest Gump talking about shrimp, but drop in apples instead! My personal favorite? The apple fritters from Irons Fruit Farm! But there will be plenty of other forms of apple, be it pies, freshly picked apples, cider, caramel covered apples or another apple version!
Held in historic downtown Lebanon from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., rain or shine and admission is FREE!
You'll have vendors, but they 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!
Now one change to this year is they're trimming back on some of the extras, no music, no dancers, just a focus on the festival's roots of food and crafts!
And why not have an Apple Bake-off while we're at it! Last year's theme was Apple Crisp, this year it's Apple Pie!
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 Chrysler Dodge Jeep (518 W. Main) and ride the free shuttle. If you're lucky, you may find some on-street parking in the surrounding city streets, but expect to be walking a few blocks if you do.
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.
