2017 Kimmswick Apple Butter Festival
October 28th & 29th 10am until 5pm
The Apple Butter Festival is the largest event in Jefferson County drawing close to 100,000 visitors during the 2 day event. The festival starts at 10am daily (however, people start arriving as early as 8am as the vendors are starting to set-up their booths.) and runs until 5pm. The town will be closed to vehicle traffic during these hours. Visitors may park at the Windsor School, located on Highway 61/67, and catch a bus into town. The buses will run throughout the day shuttling visitors to-and-from the parking area at Windsor School. Parking will also be available off of Highway K and is just a short walking distance into town. There will be no shuttles running on this route. The least crowded time during the festival is Sunday mornings.
The Kimmswick Historical Society will again be making and selling their famous Apple Butter at the Apple Butter Pavilion on Market Street.
100’s of vendor booths will fill the city park and line the streets of Kimmswick selling a variety of crafts and food items. Live entertainment will also be provided by the city of Kimmswick and the Kimmswick Merchants.
The Blue Owl Parking lot offers the advantage of a black top surface for level set up and no mud if it rains. The Blue Owl offers these 10x10 booths at the same price as those in the city parks and streets.
