How sweet are these Applefests…


Applefest is a celebration of harvest time in the heart of Victoria’s apple country.

The modern Harcourt Applefest celebrates all local produce and community endeavour. These days, newer ventures like wine, cider and delicacies share the stage.

The festival has evolved into a big event, welcoming an ever-increasing number of visitors from near and far each year. The market and entertainment get better each year, too.

On Saturday of the Labour Day long weekend, the warm air will effervesce with cider fizz.

There will be something for everyone.
Especially ones who like apples.

Features included the renowned annual Market, the Kids Karnival, Art Show, Apple Pie, probably a Pool Party and definitely a full-day of Live Entertainment.

Harcourt Applefestis made possible by a long list of volunteers and sponsors. Thanks to all involved, from first thoughts through to final ciders.
It’s gonna take the same sort of effort to get it together again. We’ll let you know soon whose on our new list of heroes.
