Apple Butter Makin' Days in Mount Vernon, MO near Branson.
Only about an hour from Branson, Mount Vernon is just off of Interstate 44 and hosts this event every year where the traditional method of apple butter making is brought back to life. The secret recipe is put together the day before the festival in huge copper kettles over open fires and stirred to perfection.
Of course, you'll be able to sample and purchase apple butter, but there is plenty of other food and things to do for the whole family from a bubble gum blowing contest and pie-eating contest to a pet parade.
