This is the largest celebration Kimmswick has annually, drawing nearly 100,000 visitors. Come enjoy the small town ambiance, stroll through our streets lined with 500 - 600 food, drink and craft vendors. Also enjoy lots of live entertainment throughout the town including Bluegrass and dulcimer music.

The Kimmswick Historical society will gather on Friday to peel and prepare the apples. Early, before dawn, on each day of the festival, the wood-burning fire is lighted, the kettle is filled with apples and cooking and stirring continues for seven to eight hours until the fragrant spread is thick enough to be sealed in jars.

The Apple Butter Festival starts at 10 a.m. each day and wraps up around 5 p.m. The town streets will be closed to vehicle traffic during these hours. Visitors may park at the Windsor School and catch a bus into town. The buses will run throughout the day shuttling visitors to-and-from the parking area at Windsor School. There will also be limited parking available off of Highway K and is just a short walking distance into town.

For the children, there is a miniature train, petting zoo and pony rides that will delight kids at any age. Visitors are welcome and encouraged to come visit, help stir and enjoy the ambiance at the pavilion. Apple Butter is for sale each day or until the last jar is sold.
