Just as you got a taste of fall at the Lincolnton Apple Festival, don't be alarmed that you can't enjoy it for longer. The other side of the county, in east Lincoln, the eleventh annual Denver Days festival will kick off on Wednesday September 25 and run through Saturday the twenty-seventh. This four day festival is packed full of fun, local businesses and vendors, and good fair food. It is the closest thing Lincoln County has to a county fair. It is worth it.
The Rotary Club puts on this huge event that includes free concerts, a talent competition, and a special needs kids day. Cole Rides is the ride vendor and has a large assortment of rides for small children and includes an Expo Wheel similar to a ferris wheel.
You will find the typical fair foods from cotton candy, funnel cake and popcorn; as well as the newcomers to fair food. Be sure to try the deep fried oreos, red velvet funnel cake, and other options at least once in your lifetime to experience the fun.
Denver's Got Talent is the local talent competition that will take place Saturday from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. There are free concerts scattered throughout the event.
Chosen Rejects will play Thursday night at 7 p.m. which is Special Needs Kids Day. Wednesday and Thursday is Student Fun Night which means one price rides for the night. Friday night welcomes Bob May Guitarist & Friends and Treehouse starting at 6:30 p.m. for the free concert series. Be sure to come back Saturday at noon for Ambrosial and join Jim Quick & Coastline at 7:30p.m.
Parking is free at Rock Springs Elementary School. Special Needs Kids day provides free rides and food for the kids and their families. Contact Bob Hecht at 704-634-4444 for information about the special needs event.
