Elyria Apple Festival - September 21-23, 2018!

The backdrop of Elyria’s historic downtown and Ely Square will offer this year’s Apple Festival crowd a fresh canvas.  New lighting, new crosswalks, new roads, a revitalized Lorain County Courthouse, a new arts scene, a new restaurant and more will add to the festive and family-friendly atmosphere. 

Now in its 38th year, and thanks to the efforts of many, this year’s Apple Festival once again promises to be one of Ohio’s premiere autumn events.  There is something for everyone, so bring friends and family and enjoy all that Ohio’s 14th largest city has to offer. 

You’ll find dozens of concessions, craft shopping, live entertainment, a 5K run and fun walk, a corn hole competition, the Chemical Bank Antique Car Show, the Princess Pageant, an art show, children’s activities, an apple pie baking contest, and more.  For details look for the schedule in the special Apple Festival tab of the Chronicle Telegram, or go to www.elyriaapplefestival.com

And while you are in the downtown area, don’t forget to check out our magnificent waterfalls off of Kerstetter Way; the Blank Slate community art and music venue; the new Foundry Kitchen and Bar; Pioneer Plaza complete with outdoor musical instruments; the Elyria Arts Council’s Artworks Gallery and more.   In all, there is over $38 million of reinvestment happening in our downtown area alone, and over $400 million of reinvestment city-wide.    

Special thanks are extended to the very hard-working volunteers who comprise the Apple Festival Committee, including Coordinator Linda Brown; as well as the Apple Festival Board, supporting Century Club contributors, vendors, sponsors and various city departments.  Their support, and your patronage, promises to make the 2018 Apple Festival an event to remember.
