Apple Festival is Saturday

Wayne Howard

The Lincoln County Apple Festival celebrates its 50th birthday this Saturday (Oct. 15th).  This isn't the 50th Apple Festival; because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it's the first time there has been an Apple Festival since 2019.  The 2020 and 2021 events were canceled.  

There was also one other cancellation back in the 1990s.  A hurricane was supposed to give us a windy, rainy, stormy day--but it turned out to be a pleasant September Saturday; unfortunately, the decision had to be made ahead of time, so there was no Festival that year.

In 2018, the event had to be rescheduled from September until October because of rain.  It was then decided that the cooler weather in October would be better for the Festival than the traditional third Saturday in September.  It was held in October again in 2019 (as scheduled) but then came the pandemic in 2020 and 2021.

The first event on Festival day this year will be the Rotary 5K and Fun Run beginning and ending at Lincolnton High School.  You have until Wednesday (Oct. 12th) to pre-register.  The entry fee is $20 but goes up to $25 after Wednesday.  

The Festival will, of course, include apples and apple products from local apple growers.  There'll be a plethora or food and drink vendors as well as other exhibitors and entertainment on two stages--the main sstage on the Courtsquare and the east stage at 5th Third Bank (S. Cedar St. @ E. Main St.).  

A shuttle service wll provide a solution to the question 'where can I park?'  We'll have more on that and on parking in a later article.


There is a chance of showers on Thursday, but the forecast calls for a sunny day on Saturday.  Dress for Fall.  It will be about 40° Saturday morning (possibly upper 30s in some areas) and will only warm to about 70° that afternoon.
