This is the 43rd year for the festival, which runs Saturday and Sunday at Johnny Appleseed Park, near the Memorial Coliseum. The annual event is free and features 1800s-era food, music and activities, while celebrating the legacy of John Chapman, the man the Johnny Appleseed story is based on, whose grave is found within the park.
