Read below for answers of some of the most commonly asked questions about the Griggsville Apple Festival:
When is the Griggsville Apple Festival held?
The festival is held every full third weekend in September. Festivities kick off on Friday evening, and wrap up with our community church service on Sunday. Weather permitting, all events are held on the uptown square in Griggsville.
What happens in the event of rain?
If Mother Nature isn't cooperating, we move as many events as possible to the Griggsville-Perry High School gymnasium. We communicate these changes as soon as decisions are made through our local media and our Facebook page.
What if I want to volunteer to help the festival?
That would be great! We're always looking for another set of hands and unique talents to help strengthen our committee. Some volunteers help in a support role, others chair events, and others volunteer in logistics and planning. If you're interested in being part of the Griggsville Apple Festival team, just speak with any committee member. We regularly meet once a month, and more frequently as we grow closer to the festival.
What if I want to contribute financially to the festival?
Our festival cannot be the success it is without the financial support of our community. We accept financial and gift donations for all of our events. Our biggest fund raiser is the annual Cake & Cookie Basket Auction on Saturday evening. Winning bids for those items benefit both the Griggsville Apple Festival, and an organization of the entrant's choosing!
