Apple Festival Grand Marshal
Every year the Apple Festival Committee picks a person who has made a significant impact on Bayfield to be the Apple Festival Grand Marshal. The Grand Marshal makes several appearances across the Apple Festival grounds throughout the weekend and has a premium spot in the Apple Festival Parade.
Below is a list of past Grand Marshals, as you can see our records are pretty sparse. Please contact the Bayfield Chamber and Visitor Bureau if you know who any of the past Grand Marshals were. If you have a photo to share of that person we would love to feature it here! Contact the Marketing Director at email@example.com
