AppleJack Harvest Festival 2021 - At the Home of Arbor Day!

October 2nd - 3rd, 2021

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.

Come anytime this autumn for our AppleJack Harvest Festival, kicking off Saturday, September 18, and lasting until the final apple is eaten.

See below for details on what’s happening the entire season long!

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