Downtown streets are filled with more than 425 arts & craft vendors, 100 food concessions, and 4 different music stages featuring a variety of music. Cloggers, folk dancers, rope skippers, and square dancers provide additional entertainment venues for festival goers. Appalachian Heritage crafts are highlighted such as woodcarving, chair making, soap making, pottery throwing, and quilting. When walking through the streets of the festival observing and buying lots of the arts and crafts, don't forget the apples! Local apple growers set up throughout the festival selling their apples, apple cider, and dried apples. After all, this festival pays tribute to the fruit grown and harvested each fall by regional apple orchardists.

And don’t miss out on Friday's Apple Jam, with live entertainment at the corner of 10th and Main Streets.
