Country Applefest Inc. is a non profit 501C organization, that consists of a small group of volunteer members who meet regularly to plan the festival. Unlike many other festivals, we have not accepted corporate donations in the past. We made an exception for the year of 2012 to create a larger celebration of our 30th year. We will return to our regular practice of not accepting corporate sponsors at the end of the 2012 season. This helps us maintain quality control, without external restrictions.  Our festival is an art, craft and food festival.  We do not allow informational booths.

  The Country Applefest festival is the longest running craft festival in the City of Lebanon. The average yearly attendance is between 30,000 and 40,000 people for our one day event.

  We are members of the Lebanon Chamber of Commerce and HDLI. We also can be followed on Twitter and Facebook.
