    This years annual Apple Butter Festival in beautiful historic Kimmswick, Missouri will take place on October 26th and 27th, 2019 from 10am-5pm, and as a result the city will be closed to vehicle traffic during those hours. This is the largest single event in Jefferson County, much larger than the annual Strawberry Festival that takes place in Kimmwick every June. The Apple Butter Festival is estimated to draw near 100,000 people. The Apple Butter Festival is FREE, but expect to pay at least $5, if not $10, for parking. Paid parking will be available off of Highway K with just a short walk into town. Shuttle parking is available too, so watch for the signs. Visitors may park at Windsor School campus and ride a free shuttle bus into the Festival. The busses will run throughout the day shuttling visitors to/from the parking area at the School. The Kimmswick Apple Butter Festival is now on facebook at www.facebook.com/applebutterfestival, so tell your friends!!

    TIP: There will also be residents that offer a piece of their property to park on for a small fee down closer to the river past Windsor school, but before the old bridge (now used as a foot bridge). Just keep on the windy road to the southeast side of Kimmswick, turn the corner that heads for Kimmswick (you will be paralell with the river) and the houses on the left left you park on their property. This is where I (the webmaster) parks every year and have been for over 15 years of attending this event. It's cheap (usually $5) and only a super short stroll into town, The Dough Depot and the Blue Owl Restaurant. In my opinion, the best day to go arrive to beat the crowds is Sunday between 10am and 11am, since most folks are in church still. If you want to thank me, then feel free to mention my above listed St. Louis Cornhole site to your friends and family!

    There will be hundred's of vendor booths throughout the city park selling a variety of crafts and food items. Live entertainment will also be provided by the City of Kimmswick and the Kimmswick Merchants. There is no longer an ATM at the Blue Owl Restaurant due to a lack of use (Thank you Marti for this update!). The Apple Butter Festival started in 1977 and has been growing larger and larger each year ever since. All of the town shops are open and accessible only via foot traffic. Don't forget to buy some of the famous apple butter made fresh during the festival by the Kimmswick Historical Society at the Apple Butter Pavilion on Market Street. From past experience, we have found that the best time to arrive at the Apple Butter Festival is between 10am and 11am on Sunday morning due to the fact that many people are in church. If you can, beat the crowds and go early! Once again, don't forget to join us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/applebutterfestival
