Celebrating 29 years, the Applefest celebration in historic downtown Weston is known throughout the Midwest as one of the best fall festivals in Missouri.
Visitors to Applefest are encouraged to come early on Saturday morning to enjoy Weston’s hometown parade along Main Street at 10:00 am. The Saturday parade will feature antique tractors, classic cars, fire trucks and bands.
There will be over 60 art and craft booths along the downtown Main Street to peruse and you’re also invited to browse the many unique Weston shops during your visit.
Our mini-hay baler has demonstrated and sold his hay bales for 26 years. Watch apple butter being made over an open wood fire and purchase a jar of apple butter to take home. Kids will love to work the apple press to see how apple cider is made.
Weston’s famous apple dumplings, apple pies, and cookies will be available through our local churches. You can catch a quick and tasty bite at our Applefest Food Court or, you might choose to sit down, relax and enjoy the delicious cuisine at one of the several fine restaurants in Weston.
Fun children’s activities both days are planned in the park with Pony Rides, Face Painting, Straw Bale Maze, Pumpkin Painting, and Agriculture Education Interactive Games and Activities.
