Around 80,000 people visit Lincolnton for our one day event around our iconic Court Square. Many of them return year after year to this fall festival of the harvest, and they bring their children and now their grandchildren.

Maybe the fresh apples by the bag or bushel are the biggest attraction. Some say they come for the homemade fried apple pies and full apple pies. It could be the local entertainment and food, the children’s activities, or the family friendly, alcohol-free atmosphere that continues to draw the crowds.
