The Apple Festival Funland offers children and adults alike the opportunity to enjoy a traditional hometown carnival, including all the rides, food, and games you have come to know and love. Open every day during the festivities, Swyear Amusements provide enough lights and smells to transform Downtown Murphysboro into the perfect carnival atmosphere. Located in the middle of it all, the Festival Funland truly is the center of the Murphysboro Apple Festival.
Purchasing Advance Ride Tickets offers you the best bang for your buck. A limited number of ride tickets are available before the carnival opens. Each ticket is good for one ride and may be used on any day of the Festival - 1 Ticket = 1 ride! Advance Ride Tickets may be purchased in advance only from the Murphysboro Apple Festival Office - 110 South 14th Street, Murphysboro. Tickets are priced at 10 tickets for $30 and usually sell out within two weeks!
Regular ride tickets are available to purchase from the ticket booth during Funland open hours. Ticket prices and ticket values are set by the carnival company and are subject to change at any time.
