The Nappanee Apple Festival is a celebration of the Nappanee community for residents, businesses and visitors. The Festival embraces the pace of Nappanee by showcasing our hometown heritage through quality events, entertainment, products, services and people.  There is live entertainment on two stages, carnival rides, over 150 exhibitors and 20 different food vendors, and a huge parade with an airplane flyover on Saturday morning. Other events include an apple peeling contest, 5K road run, apple pie eating and apple peeling contests, goldfish races, wings & wheels show (cars and airplanes), antique tractor and engine show, napple baking contest, kids & adult pedal pull contests, and a scholarship pageant. Of course you won’t want to miss the popular Napple Store with fresh baked apple dumplings, apple pie, apple butter, apple cider, apple fritter bread, apple turnovers, homemade applesauce and much more! In 2016 and 2013, the Nappanee Apple Festival was chosen as #1 in the State of Indiana in the “Top Ten Fall Festival Signature Food Items” for our 7’ apple pie!
