The 53rd edition of the Apple n' Pork Festival returns this weekend to a full in-person event.
Last year's Festival was a drive-thru ham and bean meal with a few other groups doing scaled-down events as well. Director of the CH Moore Homestead, Joey Woolridge explains the annual festival is a fundraiser for the upkeep of the Homestead and Museum.
According to Woolridge, each year, the funds raised from the Apple n' Pork Festival would go to restoring a room in the house. With so many rooms, it took a lot of festivals to restore the whole house. This year, the funds will help in the house's ongoing painting project.
As the festival grew, Clinton and DeWitt County non-profits began to join in on the festival with a portion of their proceeds going back to the Homestead.
Most of your food favorites will be back again this year along with musical entertainment provided by Exelon. The flea market returns and trams are planning to be running again in 2021.
