Apple Festival 2021
Start your fun with Youth Day on Saturday, September 25, 2021, sponsored by the Greater Niles Community Federal Credit Union. Kids will be on hand at 9 am for the Trike & Bike Race and other activities. At noon, they will all be at Eastside Park so that they can lineup for the Youth Parade. The Youth Parade starts at 1:00 from Eastside Park and ends at the Apple Festival Fairgrounds on 17th St. Once the kids get to the fairgrounds they know that everything is free! Free Hot Dogs, Cotton Candy, Prizes, Games, Sno Cones and Rides for the kids. All games are sponsored by McDonald's Restaurant of Niles and the Niles Service League. Maybe Ronald McDonald will make it again this year too?
The carnival atmosphere begins in earnest on September 30 thru October 3, 2021 when the Apple Festival Fairgrounds are open. There will be Contests: Apple Peeling Contest, Scarecrow Contest, Log Cutting Contest, Biggest Apple Contest and so much more. Apple Festival even provides an Arts and Crafts Festival, Live Entertainment, Crowning of the Apple Festival King & Queen, Fireworks, Carnival Rides and Carnival Foods and much more! Also, don't miss the Apple Festival Grand Parade down Main Street on October 2nd at 1:30. For complete information, visit the Apple Festival website.
