AppleJack Festival

September 21st - 23rd, 2018

Nebraska City’s historic AppleJack Festival annually draws between 60,000 and 80,000 people to Nebraska City to celebrate the kickoff of the apple harvest. Apple pie, apple cider, apple cider donuts, candy apples, caramel apples, apple fritters, apple salad…pretty much anything you can imagine made from apples are available at the AppleJack Festival. With over 6 craft fairs, a parade, a classic car show, live music, and a 3-day carnival, it’s no wonder the AppleJack Festival has been named as one of the top 10 Fall Harvest Festivals in America by the USA Today!

2018 is an APPLEJACK FLASHBACK!  We still have all the fun you’ve gotten used to over the years — the awesome parade filled with marching bands, the orchards overflowing with cider and pie, more craft fairs than you can shake a carved walking stick at — but this year, we’re bringing back the crazy event you remember from your childhood:
Water Barrel Fights?  You bet!
Apple Pie Baking Contest?  Yep!
Apple Peeling Contest?  Sharpen that knife!
Go-cart races?  We think it’s gonna happen, folks!
This is an AppleJack you don’t want to miss!
