How do you like them apples?
If you’re unable to make it out to the suburbs this fall to pick apples at the best orchards and farms near Chicago – worry not. A wonderful variety of apple-themed foods and drinks from local farms will be available at this weekend’s beloved Apple Fest.
The two-day festival went virtual last year like many of Chicago’s cherished traditions but is returning with an expanded footprint this year stretching Lincoln Avenue from Lawrence Avenue to Wilson Avenue.
The festivities kick off this Saturday, October 2nd at 9 am and will run through Sunday, October 3rd until 6 pm.
“Apple Fest is always Chicagoans’ sign that fall is here and to stock up on their favorite fall goodies to ring in the season,” said Rudy Flores, executive director of Lincoln Square Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce.
There will be an array of artisanal food vendors, local and national breweries, and farmer’s market-style stalls selling goods from farms across the Midwest, as well as a host of local retailers selling eco-friendly gifts and handcrafted jewelry.
When guests aren’t perusing all the apple-themed attractions there will be activity stations and music stages including one at Giddings Plaza featuring performances from cover bands such as The StingRays, The Noize, The Friends Band, and others.
Apple Fest will take place this weekend on October 2nd–3rd from 9 am to 6 pm each day. You can read more about the 34th edition of Apple Fest at lincolnsquare.org/apple-fest
