Woodbine Applefest

Woodbine, IA 51579

From pies to pastries to slushies to caramel, the last Saturday of every September is dedicated to a festival of everything APPLE! Since 1988, people have traveled the historic Lincoln Highway and the scenic Loess Hills byway to reach Applefest in Woodbine, IA!

Along with our apples, we host one of Iowa’s largest car shows, which attracts from 350 to 400 makes and models from as early as the Model T Ford. We put on a craft show, and also support our outdoor market, and local business vendors… It’s a great time to start your holiday shopping! If food is your passion, we offer a wide variety of delicious cuisine, sure to fit any taste!

After the day is done, be sure to check out the entertainment and street dance at the beer garden located next to its sponsor, Good Fellows Restaurant, at Walker and 5th Street.  Don’t worry about a cover charge, Tommy Gate Manufacturing is sponsoring all the live entertainment at the Garden. So stop on in, relax with a brew, or kick up a heel or two. Either choice is a wonderful way to top off an unforgettable day at the Woodbine Applefest.
