Thirty years ago a small group of community members got together and decided they needed another festival for the community. There had once been a Strawberry Festival with fresh strawberries, homemade ice cream and strawberry shortcake, but changes in regulations made that too difficult to continue.
This small group of founding members decided on a Fall Festival and what better fruit in the fall but apples? The Darlington Apple Festival was born and first held in the parking lot of the Darlington United Methodist Church.
