About Nappanee Apple Festival

On top of celebrating Indiana's Bi-Centennial, historic Nappanee community continues its tradition of being one of Indiana's top fall festivals with its 41st annual Apple Fete September, 15-18, 2016. Kicking off one week in advance (Sept 10) is a tractor and truck pull, drawing in competition from the Midwest area. Festival week features IN's largest 7’ apple pie, more apple delights, the Napple Store with everything apple, 190 craft & commercial vendors, 30 food booths, two free entertainment stages, carnival rides, exhibits, contests, demonstrations, scholarship queen pageant, Antique Tractor & Engine Show, Saturday's parade with vintage war plane flyover followed by Wings & Wheel Show and Sunday antique tractor pull. This 7000 population community offers up great Hoosier hospitality as it welcomes over 80,000 people to the three and a half day event. There will be plenty of your favorite apple favorites: apple pie, apple fritters, apple dumplings, apple turnovers, apple fry pies, apple bread, applesauce, apple cider and apple butter to devour during the festival or take home to enjoy later. Experience a truly unique hometown festival that leaves you marking your calendar for a return trip to the following year's gala.
