Kimmswick Fall Festival


Apple Butter Festival in Kimmswick

KIMMSWICK, MO: (STLRealEstate.News) The historic town Kimmswick, Missouri offers a chance to step back into the much more relaxed days of the 1800’s when people enjoyed the simple things.  Visitors can enjoy a walk through this serene town with many one-of-a-kind shops that will inspire you and take you back to more laid-back times.  The jovial ambiance of area will remind you of a time long past.

There are currently more than 25 shops and restaurants already, and the town continually keeps growing.  Many of the shops have been restored to look and feel like the time the town was first founded in 1859.  So what could be more popular for a fun, fall festival when the trees start turning beautiful colors, than the Kimmswick Annual Apple Butter Festival?

Held each year in the final week of October, this festival is the largest celebration Kimmswick puts on, drawing over 100,000 visitors.  Like usual, visitors will have the opportunity to stroll through the streets and city park lined with close to 600 food, drink and craft vendors.  There will also be a variety of live entertainment throughout the town including bluegrass, country rock, and dulcimer music.

The Kimmswick Historical Society will again be making and selling their famous Apple Butter at the Apple Butter Pavilion on Market Street.  The two day event will be held October 29th & 30th, from 10 am until 5 pm, but it’s best to start arriving as early as 8am, as the vendors start setting up their booths early.

The town will be closed to vehicle traffic during these hours, and visitors can park at the Windsor School, located on Highway 61/67.  From there, festival goers will be shuttled into town by bus throughout the day.  Parking will also be available off of Highway K, and is just a short walking distance into town.

Bring in the fall by coming out and enjoying the fun!
