Welcome to the Bakeapple Folk Festival, a celebration of local culture and a salute to that most wonderful of wild berries — the Bakeapple.

Since its inception in 1980 the Bakeapple Folk Festival has a history of endurance. Each and every year, no matter what hurdles may arise, the show goes on — thanks to a team of dedicated volunteers and loyal sponsors.

From wind-flattened tents in the early years, through times of torrential rain and poor berry harvests, to today's global pandemic... when August arrives it's always Bakeapple Festival time!
