Crabapple Fest, held Oct. 5 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in historic downtown Crabapple, will see the City of Milton and CCA combine their two popular events – the 5,000-person Milton Roundup and 10,000-person Crossroads at Crabapple Antique and Arts Festival – into one massive destination festival.
The best from each event will greet the community, including: antiques and art from hundreds of juried vendors; a music and entertainment stage with local and touring acts; games, rides and activities for kids; and, for the first time, beer and wine in the festival grounds.
Organizers expect at least 10,000 festival-goers.
