On Saturday, May 5, 2012, Salem Street in historic downtown Apex will come alive!  For more than thirty years, Peak Fest has brought families together for a day of fun, food and fellowship. The arts and crafts festival has deep roots within the Apex community.  What started as a small community day in a school parking lot has grown into an event that draws hundreds of vendors and over 15,000 people to the streets of downtown Apex.  Every year, the Apex Festival Commission plans a bigger and more exciting day.

Visit www.apexpeakfest.com for more information.
