Board of Directors

2019 Applefest Board Members

La Crescent Apple Festival Board of Directors

The La Crescent Apple Festival is put on each year by countless volunteers who like to come out, have a little fun, and give back to the community.

A special group of people dedicate their time and talent year round to making sure Applefest is a success, while also attending other community events here in La Crescent, and in the surrounding area.

That special group of people: The Board of Directors.  Next time you see them out, tell them about a special time you have had in La Crescent, they love to hear stories about what makes our community so great!
