The annual Taylorsville Apple Festival is held on the third Saturday every October on Main Avenue Drive in downtown Taylorsville. This year’s big event will be held on Saturday, October 15 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The Taylorsville Apple Festival is a charity and all proceeds above operating costs go to The Needy Children’s Benevolence Fund at the 11 Alexander County Schools.
The Taylorsville Apple Festival is the largest event in Alexander County for the year hosting all of these wonderful events…
The festival boasts 3 entertainment stages: The Main Stage on the courthouse lawn, the Gospel Stage at the west end of the festival, and the Childrens’ Stage on the east end of the festival. The Kid’s Korner is the biggest draw for our younger attendees.
The Kid’s Korner has hosted in the past, pony rides, camel rides, mechanical bucking bull rides, pitching booths, numerous professional inflatables, puppet shows, music and much more.
Food vendors surround the courthouse emitting some of the most wonderful smells and best tasting food you’ll find in the Carolinas. One can find, chopped barbeque, eggrolls, hamburgers and hotdogs, barbeque chicken, Italian sausages, and the list goes on.
And don’t forget dessert. Items here include: homemade ice cream, cakes, cookies, and of course fried apple pies.
And don’t forget the hundreds of craft vendors lining many blocks of our town that day. There is also a Professional area at the west end of the festival.
