Celebrate the harvest in the heart of apple country

This Saturday 10 March is Applefest in beautiful Harcourt, an annual celebration of local produce, music, art and community.

This much-loved festival has grown and evolved over the years and welcomes an ever-increasing number of visitors each year.

There’s something for everyone including the art show, apple pie baking competition, bike parade, food, regional wines, craft beers and ciders and amazing live entertainment all day on the Applefest main stage.

If you’re bringing the kids then don’t miss the Applefest Kids Karnival with pony rides, climbing wall, miniatures trains, jumping castles and giant inflatable slide, face painting, craft activities, archery, pedal powered slot cars, roving entertainers and even a free pool party at the Harcourt Community Pool.

This year the Kids Karnival welcomes local youth arts group XtremeInc who have teamed up with parkour instructors Walk the Walls to deliver a massive Country Parkour Course right to the heart of Applefest.

The 40 metre circuit uses recycled and agricultural materials including pallets, hay bales, tractor tyres, bars and vaults and is suitable for young people of all ages – from beginner to advanced.

Enjoy our blissful early Autumn weather and make a day of it, or, if you’re keen to stay on drop by the monthly Maldon Market on Sunday and pick up something from one of the many local makers and growers.

We’re looking forward to the long weekend after another busy week of strong sales. Hope to see you at one of our Open for Inspections.
