Always the last full weekend in September.
Wear your comfortable shoes and explore booth after booth of foods, crafts, art, antiques and more. Entertainment, demonstrations, and museum tours are among the festival activities. Plan to spend the day! Tram and bus transportation to various sites provided for a small fee. An estimated 80,000 visitors attend the festival each year.
Since the first modest festival which was held on the museum grounds in 1968 and consisted of a kettle of soup and stack of sandwiches, the Apple ‘n Pork Festival has grown to become one of Central Illinois’ largest and best-attended fall events. Still among the most popular food items are the smoked ham sandwiches, kettle-cooked ham and beans, and grilled bratwurst. Proceeds from purchases made on the museum grounds help with expenses associated with the operation and maintenance of the C.H. Moore Homestead DeWitt County Museum.
