AppleJack Harvest Festival 2020 - Weekend Three: All Things Apple!

October 3rd - 4th, 2020

…AND SEPTEMBER 19 & 20 AND SEPTEMBER 26 & 27 AND OCTOBER 10 & 11!

 

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.

Nebraska City’s historic AppleJack Festival annually draws between 60,000 and 80,000 people to Nebraska City to celebrate the apple harvest. This year, we are spreading the celebration out over the entire harvest season, not just on one three-day stretch. It’s the same great fun, but smaller crowds.

Come anytime this autumn for our AppleJack Harvest Festival!

AppleJack Festival has been named as one of the top 10 Fall Harvest Festivals in America by the USA Today!
