Welcome in Fall with Lincoln Square Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce's 29th Annual Apple Fest! The festivities will take place on 2 days this year: Saturday, October 1 & Sunday, October 2, 2016, from 9am - 5pm both days. Apple Fest is a long standing tradition in Lincoln Square bringing the community together to celebrate the beginning of fall.
Dozens of vendors participate in the event, selling everything from hard cider and candy apples to scarves and hats. Stop by and pick up a fresh baked apple pie, a bushel of apples, hot apple cider, or even an apple pizza. Bring the kids along and hang out in the Kid Zone where children's activities will occur throughout the day. Or relax in Giddings Plaza and listen to the wonderful sounds of local musicians. There's sure to be something for everyone at Apple Fest!
Date: Saturday, October 1st - Sunday, October 2nd, 2016
Time: 9:00am - 5:00pm, each day
Location: 4700 block of N. Lincoln Avenue (Between W. Leland and W. Lawrence)
We're beyond excited to have Pickle's Playroom live broadcasting the Kids Zone stage program straight to their digital family radio station, PicklesPlayroom.com Radio AND Miss Jamie From the Farm as our MC throughout the day. Professional voice actor and children’s music performer Jamie “Miss Jamie” Martin entertains families while teaching them about healthy eating, the joy of hard work, and other life lessons learned on the farm. Jamie came from farming families - her mother was raised on a farm near the Fox River and her father grew up on a 600 acre ranch in Texas, and now she’s wrangling her own two young daughters in Chicago. She’s keeping up with them while she’s singing about life down on the farm through her fun songs and funny puppet characters. You can catch her performance at festivals, park districts, and libraries across the state, but she’s best known for her monthly appearances at every Mariano’s grocery store.

We're excited to have Mohawk Momma Facepaints for a portion of the day as well this year. Ashley "Mohawk Momma" Summers has been using her artistic skills to entertain children for over three years. She loves face painting with kids because they are all mini walking canvasses that bring her art to life. When she's not painting she's hanging out with her two kids and husband.
Joining Mohawk Mamma will be Caricatures by Cara. Cara Dunning is an illisutrator and caricature Artist best known for her speed, ability to capture likeness and entertaining personality at live events.
