AppleJack Festival 2024

September 19th - 30th, 2024

SEPTEMBER 20, 21, & 22 — THE TRADITIONAL WEEKEND!

…AND SEPTEMBER 28 & 29 — ALL THINGS APPLE!

 

Apple pie, apple cider, apple cider donuts, candy apples, caramel apples, apple fritters, apple salad…pretty much anything you can imagine made from apples is 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. We are spreading the celebration out over two weekends during the harvest season, not just on one three-day stretch.

We invite you to come anytime this autumn for our 56th AppleJack Festival! It kicks off Friday, September 20, and lasts until the final apple is eaten.

See below for details on what’s happening in 2024!

AppleJack Festival has been named as one of the Fall Harvest Festivals in America by the USA Today and a top Fall Destination by HGTV!
