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, 10 March 2018, the warm air will again be alive with cider fizz.

We put on something for everyone. Especially ones who like apples. Features include the renowned annual Market, the Kids Karnival, Art Show, Apple Pie, Pool Party and a full-day of Live Entertainment.

Harcourt Applefest 2018 is made possible by a long list of volunteers and sponsors. Thanks to all involved, from first thoughts through to final ciders.
