The 41st annual Nappanee Apple Festival opens at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 15 and ends at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 18, 2016. Proud of our family-friendly atmosphere and Midwestern hospitality, the festival attracts more than 80,000 people annually and has become one of the largest festivals in the State of Indiana!

The festival showcases two stages of entertainment, 130 craft vendors, 60 commercial vendors, carnival rides, parade with signature military aircraft fly-over, Miss Apple Blossom scholarship pageant, cornhole tournament, apple baking contest, garden tractor pull, kids and adult pedal pull contests, wings and wheels show at airport, apple peeling and pie-eating contests, and many more activities throughout the event. As a prelude to the 41st annual festival, a tractor and truck pull will take place on Saturday, September 10, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. at the Callander Sportsplex. Nine classes of pulls will be featured in this 8th annual event. Our 5K road run will also be held Saturday, September 10, 2016.

In the spirit of the celebration, you will find crates of fresh apples dotting the downtown sidewalks and more than 25 food vendors including many local non-profit organizations serving all your favorites. There will be plenty of your favorite fresh apple products like apple pie, apple fritters, apple dumplings, apple turnovers, apple fry pies, apple bread, applesauce, apple cider and apple butter to enjoy during the festival or to take home to enjoy later. We invite you to experience a truly unique hometown festival that will leave you marking your calendar to return for next years festival!
