This festival is continually named the Best Festival in the Show-Me State and its 2024 dates have been announced so make your plans accordingly! Here are the details you need to know...

Missouri's Best Awards once again named the Versailles Olde Tyme Apple Festival as the "Best Festival" in Missouri for 2024!  The Versailles Olde Tyme Apple Festival will be happening Saturday, October 5th and Sunday, October 6th this year so mark your calendars!

What is the Versailles Olde Tyme Apple Festival all about (well apples duh...) on, they describe the festival, "The Annual Olde Tyme Apple Festival is an award-winning festival enjoyed by thousands of festival-goers from all over the state and beyond. Starting with the first apple festival in 1980, the crowds have increased yearly and generally reach about 30,000 apple lovers that come to shop the hundreds of booths in the arts and crafts fair held around the town square." The festival website also mentions how they always have a parade, a car show, live entertainment, and more!

Worth Attending?

I have never been to the festival but it seems as though there is good reason it continues to be named the best in Missouri. From here in the Quincy/Hannibal area Versailles is about a 3-hour drive away (it is south of Columbia), so you definitely want to plan your hotel stays ASAP because I'm sure they get booked out months in advance. If you are looking for some perfect fall fun that doesn't include pumpkin patches I can imagine this fest would be perfect for a weekend getaway with the family or just you and your sweetheart.
