The Reid's Orchard Apple Festival has come a long way since it began with a few rides for the kids, 20 craft booths and 8 food booths all of those years ago. It's grown so much over the years and was named a Top 10 event by the Kentucky Tourism Council and a Top 20 event by the southeast Tourism Society which covers eleven states.

Plan on bringing the family out for a weekend of fun, food and fellowship!

October 19th, 2019 from 10:00 - 6:00
October 20th, 2019 from 12:00 – 6:00

Come hungry and enjoy some of the food at the Festival: Bean Soup, Burgers, Apple Dumplings, BBQ Chicken, Caramel Apples, Kettle Corn, Cotton Candy and more!

Attractions Include:

Casey Carnival Rides, Reidland Play Area, Live Music, 100 Craft Booths and Demonstrations, Horse and Pony Rides, Petting Zoo and more!

Fun Fact: "The Apple Festival was originally going to be christened The Pumpkin Festival due to being held in the Fall of the year, but was changed just one week prior to the festival’s debut.  The Reid’s decided to go with the name The Apple Festival because after all, “That’s what we’re all about!"

There is a $5 charge for parking as a fundraiser for 3 non-profit groups in Owensboro.

And, there's still time to reserve a craft booth. Contact Kathy at
