The largest event in Clinton will return this weekend as the Apple n' Pork Festival resumes after a very limited event last year due to COVID.

 

Director of the CH Moore Homestead and DeWitt County Museum, Joey Woolridge indicates many of your food favorites are back this year. She also points out 4-H is going to do a demonstration this weekend. 

 

 

Back is live music thanks to Exelon. Woolridge is excited about a Lincoln impersonator that will be making his way around the grounds. Additionally, be on the lookout for a magician.

 

 

The flea market is back this year. Woolridge indicates there's always a great variety of wares to be found at the flea market to the north of the homestead grounds.

 

 

Tours for the Museum will be taking place but Woolridge says they are going to be following all the indoor protocols for COVID being recommended by health authorities.

 

 

The jury is still out as to whether we will see a large turnout or a suppressed turnout. Woolridge believes we could see a big attendance for this year's festival because of the anticipation of its return but also people are desiring something to do and this offers an almost exclusive outdoor environment for fun this weekend.

 

 

Homestead leaders and authorities remind there are no pets allowed on the grounds of the homestead. There will be some groups absent from this year's festival but most of the favorites are back again.

 

The Festival runs from 9 am to 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday.
