Harcourt is home to some of Victoria’s most beautiful countryside…

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.

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.
