A beautiful sunny day ushered in our arrival on the first Saturday in October to the 43rd annual Apple Fest. Since we got a late start we encountered the expected Highway 13 traffic jam miles before arriving in Bayfield. As we have done in the past, we elected to detour on County J to stop at Hauser's Superior View Farm for some apples and apple wine before going into town. But a similar traffic and parking jam at Hauser's changed that plan so we headed to town via rural roads northwest of Bayfield and found a nice parking spot at the top of tenth avenue.
Despite competing with thousands of other people and cars converging on this village, I've never found the traffic and crowd experience objectionable. The community has been sponsoring this festival for many years and they do have their act together!
In 2015 the Bayfield Apple Festival is a 10Best Reader's Choice Nominee for the Most Favorite Fall Festival.
Apples galore as well as in apple butter, apple pie, apple cookies,
apple bratwurst, apple wine and apple ale
The Bayfield Lakeside park hosts the artist exhibit booths
In addition to the artists, there are numerous crafts exhibitors as well.
I was pleased to find many that were made in the upper midwest and NOT made in China!
Joanne found a nice hot plate to match the quilted hot pads she plans to make for a Christmas present.
