Lexington's Twist

on the Old West October 5!

(This festival replaces Apples Arts & Antiques)

The Old West will come alive in our historic downtown. Western re-enactors in full dress will create magic for all ages during our Fall festival. Horses, a mechanical bull, rides on "Tiny" the Giant Belgium horse and beer on the street are just some of the surprises in store. Family FUN!


Nestled in the middle of Missouri's apple growing region, we'll have many varieties for sale, plus BBQ, street vendors and other seasonal treats.


Enjoy music, kids activities, a craft beer tasting on Saturday afternoon, street vendors and a chance to build your own life-size scarecrow.


Octoberfest is fun for all and all for fun. See you Oct. 5 in Lexington!
