Nebraska City will celebrate the 50th Annual AppleJack Festival September 21-23 with a weekend full of fun activities! It’s a Flashback AppleJack; in addition to the usual offerings of craft and vendor fairs, a Fun Run, food courts, the AppleJam Carnival, pancake feed, marching band competition parade, and classic car show, Nebraska City is bringing back old favorites like water barrel fights, apple peeling contest, apple pie baking contest, and more!


Everything about the 50th Annual AppleJack Festival promises to be “Golden” Delicious! If you like caramel apples, apple pie, fresh and spicy apple cider doughnuts, apple wine, or just a lovely crisp apple, then this is the festival for you. Meander through apple orchards, snack on handfuls of kettle corn, wash it down with freshly-pressed apple cider, and browse throughout historic Nebraska City. Area museums will be open all weekend long. You don’t want to miss the replica Civil War-era Confederate submarine that will be on display outside the Civil War Veterans Museum downtown.
In 2015, USA Today ranked AppleJack as the third Best Fall Harvest Festival in the country . . . but don’t just take their word for it. Fall is the perfect time to visit Nebraska City, whether you are in search of fun-filled family adventure or a cozy getaway. Visit to learn more about the area’s eclectic shops, vineyards, orchards, recreation activities, and world-class lodging opportunities. There’s a little something for everyone in Nebraska City.
