Attendance Down at 2019 Apple n' Pork Festival

Despite down attendance at the 2019 Apple n' Pork Festival, organizers and vendors alike remain optimistic about Clinton's biggest annual event.


Clinton Police Chief Ben Lowers indicates attendance was very down this weekend as in total, just over 60,000 attended the 51st annual Apple n' Pork Festival. He feels the weather probably has a lot to do with it.



Director of the DeWitt County Museum, Joey Woolridge, says while attendance was down, people still come out for the Apple n' Pork Festival. She calls their following loyal.



Several groups were left with leftover food on Sunday afternoon and many more indicated their sales were behind their usual pace. Sunday saw two instances of downpours that lasted for several minutes.


The grounds were also more wet on Sunday than Saturday at the 51st Apple n' Pork Festival.
