About Us : The Arkansas Apple Festival is held every year during the first weekend of October in Lincoln, Arkansas. It is guaranteed to provide a weekend of fun for the whole family, no matter how old you are. Join us as we celebrate our bounty of apples and three days of wholesome family entertainment at the Arkansas Apple Festival. The center piece of our apple festival is the unequaled variety of arts and crafts featuring works of some of the most talented artisans in the Ozarks. These three days are bursting full of activities with contests for kids, a Queen Pageant in our 500 seat auditorium, musical entertainment, gospel singing, and much more. Youngsters are welcome in our special Kid's World. And yes, there will be an abundance of apple cider and free apple slices.
