A New Chapter Begins: Harvest Festival
Now at the Daviess County Lions Club Fairgrounds

Farewell to the Apple Festival at Reid’s Orchard

For years, Billy and Kathy Reid have orchestrated the magic of the Apple Festival, growing it from its humble beginnings in 1986 to the spectacular event it is today. However, as they explore new horizons and consider the changing landscape, the Reids have decided to pass on the torch.

A New Chapter Begins at the Daviess County Lions Club Fairgrounds

Starting in 2023, the Apple Festival will find its new home at the Daviess County Lions Club Fairgrounds. This transition marks not the end, but an exciting new beginning. With a seamless transition, the Lions Club will carry forward the essence of the festival, maintaining everything that has made it a staple in our community while adding fresh possibilities.

Joan Hayden, secretary of the Lions Club Fair board, is eager to uphold the festival’s tradition while enhancing its offerings. The fairgrounds offer ample space, ensuring even more vendors can be sheltered indoors. Rain or shine, the festival will continue to be a joyous experience for all attendees.

A Legacy of Community and Generosity

The decision to pass on the festival wasn’t taken lightly. The Reids’ commitment to their community and their desire to ensure the festival’s legacy lives on led them to this moment. The Daviess County Lions Club, with their experience and dedication to the fair, is the perfect fit to take on this cherished event. The festival’s community-first ethos will remain at the heart of every celebration, as the Lions Club plans to use the festival to support their charity organizations and give back to the community.

Join us in an exciting new chapter. The Reid family’s gratitude for your support throughout the years is immeasurable. Come celebrate the Harvest Festival, and let’s embrace the future as the festival’s legacy continues to shine bright at the Daviess County Lions Club Fairgrounds.
