One Fine Saturday in March 2024


Nostalgic favourites and new features will delight and entertain at Harcourt Applefest 2024, including:

The bustling market starts at 10am. There will be plenty of artsmakers and plant stalls from the local area, along with local produce, tasty food, and wine to enjoy.

Entertainment is headlined by Duck Cameron the Conjurer – Master Magician – with two shows (12 noon and 2.30pm)  and Wendy Stapleton’s Australian Women’s Choir (1.35pm), with plenty of other local talent on display throughout the day.

From 12.55pm on the main stage, participants and spectators alike will revel in the gloriously messy fun of the apple pie eating competition

The Dja Dja Wurung have lived and thrived in this valley for nearly 30,000 years.

Applefest is one-day-a-year festival that happens in the fertile Harcourt Valley.

Since 1991, Applefest has bought the residents together to meet neighbours and school friends along with many visitors to enjoy the many and varied produce and talents that exist here. They do this accompanied by live performances by local musicians.

Many volunteers—along with goodwill, sporting and service clubs—come together to make Applefest highly successful.

Good fruit growing and granite quarrying motivated many early pioneers to live in this valley nearly 200 years ago. Today, people choose to live here for many other reasons too. Working remotely is a new way of life. New residents can combine this while living close to town in a rural setting.

Please consider joining the Applefest Committee or get in touch to be a volunteer on the day.
