BAKING IT REAL
Applefest’s Baking Competition is a delicious institution, where the region’s best bakers come to be judged. So, warm up the oven and get amongst them.
With categories including Apple Pie, Apple Cake and Apple Muffins, there’s always an interesting selection.
There are awards for both adult and junior bakers, so everyone is encouraged to enter .
Entries must be presented at the fruit growers tent by 10:30am, along with a completed ENTRY FORM!
Read more about the criteria for entries on the Applefest Baking Competition details page.
Winners are announced at 1:00pm. Award winners often sell their wares at one of the Applefest market stalls. That way, everyone can get a piece of the best pie in town!
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 09 March 2019, 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, probably a Pool Party and definitely a full-day of Live Entertainment.
Harcourt Applefest 2019 is made possible by a long list of volunteers and sponsors. Thanks to all involved, from first thoughts through to final ciders.
