AppleJack 2019

September 20th - 22nd, 2019

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 a variety of 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!
