Apple Festival

Known and revered throughout Ohio and beyond, the perfect fall festival, the quintessential homecoming event. The Jackson Apple Festival has been welcoming people into Jackson from near and far for 74 years and has become one of the largest and most respected festivals in Ohio. While there have been many changes over the years, still there are many things that are still the same, the reason why so many Jackson natives who have left the home of their youth come home every year the third week in September so they and now their families can enjoy the Apple Festival once more.
