2022 Applefest

2022 Applefest - Coming Saturday, October 15th, 2022

2021 - Cancelled due to ongoing pandemic restrictions

Come celebrate the autumn season at APPLEFEST in Historic Downtown Bowmanville, the Saturday following Thanksgiving.

This tremendously popular annual street festival celebrates all things apple. Four city blocks become a showcase for our many local apple growers who proudly offer up a wide variety of fresh picked apples and other goodies. You'll also find fresh-pressed apple cider, homemade apple pies and crisps, candy and carmel apples, cider donuts, and so much more. Be sure to make a stop for our famous fresh hot apple fritters. Don't be discouraged by the line-up, they're well worth the wait!

It's also a great time to do some shopping.  Applefest features an artisan and craft market where local vendors showcase their handmade creations in tents lining the streets.  You can also discover the fabulous businesses and services in the Historic Downtown Bowmanville area many of whom will welcome you with special outdoor offerings.

Remember, all of our events offer FREE ADMISSION and FREE PARKING.

This event is brought to you by the business owners of Historic Downtown Bowmanville.


Unique handmade, high quality crafts and food products can be found in several large marquee tents and booths lining the street. Enjoy performances by local musicians and appearances by our friends from the Bowmanville Zoo.  There are plenty of things for the children to see and do, including carnival rides, jumping castles, pony rides, and more.

Your visit wouldn't be complete without browsing through the many independent shops and restaurants in Historic Bowmanville. They have plenty to offer at this harvest time of year.
