Crabapple Fest hits Milton Saturday, Oct. 5.

The changing leaves and temperatures of October in Milton can mean but one thing: It’s time for Crabapple Fest!

Held Saturday, Oct. 5 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in historic downtown Crabapple, Crabapple Fest will see the City of Milton and non-profit Crabapple Community Association (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, plus roaming musicians
  • games, rides and activities for kids
  • for the first time, beer and wine in the festival grounds
Unlike previous years, the expanded Crabapple Fest will sprawl across the crossroads of the historic community. Both Crabapple and Broadwell roads will be shut down, with vendors dotting the usually busy intersections. It means a safer, more immersive experience for everyone.
Parking and attendance, as always, are free. Shuttles will be available all day from Milton High, Northwestern Middle and Crabapple Crossing Elementary schools and Crabapple Baptist Church. Click here for directions to Crabapple Fest, located at 765 Mid Broadwell Road.

“We’re excited to bring a full-scale destination festival to the heart of Milton,” said Peyton Jamison, president CCA. “It should be a day to remember and a proud addition to the history of the Crabapple antique festival.”
