    Parade at 10am on Saturday
    Buses will not run from 9:30-11 on Saturday during the parade. Come early, park and walk to the downtown parade.

    Sunday 11am - 5pm
    Celebrating 25 years, the Applefest celebration in historic downtown Weston is known throughout the Midwest as one of the best fall festivals in Missouri.
    . The parade begins at 10:00 am on Saturday. There is ample parking within walking distance to downtown Weston.*

    Step back in history and enjoy the time-honored techniques of a Missouri family demonstrating the “lost arts” of Candle and Soap Making, Wood Turning and Carving, Leather Tanning, and Basket Weaving. In addition to the variety of other arts and craft booths along the downtown Main Street, you’re also invited to browse the many unique Weston shops during your visit.

    And, don’t miss the Garden Harvest Market vendors, with all your festival favorites to eat or to decorate your home for fall. Weston’s famous apple dumplings, apple pies, and cookies will also be available through our local churches. You can catch a quick and tasty bite at our Applefest Food Court or, you might choose to sit down, relax and enjoy the delicious cuisine at one of the several fine restaurants in Weston.

    Fun children’s activities both days are planned in the park with pony rides, carnival style games, face painting and pumpkin painting.

    Free parking is available on the western and northern sides of town. The Applefest event is only six blocks from most parking areas, so visitors can easily walk into town. Please be aware that Weston’s hilly terrain and narrow sidewalks can sometimes be challenging for the disabled to navigate. There is limited handicap accessible parking. Please allow additional time and patience if you are disabled or are accompanying someone who is.

    Please come early to one of the above spots to meet and greet and arrange transportation with everyone. We will leave at the above times. So plan accordingly. Please be on time as we will not wait for you!!! It is not fair for those on time to be late. You will be counted as a no show if you to do not meet at one of the two available meeting spots whether you are carpooling or not! Again the idea is to meetup and go together to the event. Know this is a shared meetup with others joining us. Some men will be in attendance. Feel free to contact each other to carpool to one of these two spots. There is no way to arrange a convenient spot for everyone. Please update your rsvp accordingly by the dateline of Oct. 2nd to avoid no show strikes!!! Please reread all the above details BEFORE emailing me. I am so looking forward to a great day!! I LOVE FALL!

    I am canceling this event due to the large amount of rain we will be receiving overnight. The orchard ground is VERY muddy without this much rain. Hopefully, will reschedule for another fall weekend. I will be going to the indoor Japanese festival instead. Hope to see you there! Jennifer

    I'll be going with a coworker so won't be carpooling. Haven't met anyone from here, but hope to. It would be nice to know if you all are going to eat somewhere at a certain time.

    Mo-Kan is also planning a trip to Hermann on this date. Any chance of moving one of these to Sunday so we could do both? Just asking.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
