Proud of our family-friendly atmosphere and Midwestern hospitality, the festival attracts an average of more than 80,000 people annually and has become one of the largest festivals in the State of Indiana!

The festival showcases two stages of entertainment, over 150 exhibitors, carnival rides, parade with signature military aircraft fly-over, Miss Apple Blossom scholarship pageant, cornhole tournament, 5K road run, apple baking contest, garden tractor pull, kids and adult pedal pull contests, wings and wheels show at airport, apple peeling and pie-eating contests, and many more activities throughout the event. As a prelude to the 43rd annual festival, a tractor and truck pull will take place on Saturday, September 8, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. at the Callander Sportsplex. Nine classes of pulls will be featured in this 10th annual event.

In the spirit of the celebration, you will find crates of fresh apples dotting the downtown sidewalks and over 20 different food vendors including many local non-profit organizations serving all your favorites. There will be plenty of your favorite fresh apple products like apple pie, apple fritters, apple dumplings, apple turnovers, apple fry pies, apple bread, applesauce, apple cider and apple butter to enjoy during the festival or to take home to enjoy later. We invite you to experience a truly unique hometown festival that will leave you marking your calendar to return for next year’s festival!
