A day of family fun is coming to High Town in Hereford later this month, don’t miss out! 

Hereford AppleFest is coming this September!

Last year saw Herefordshire celebrate the apple, one of our most iconic symbols, with Hereford AppleFest. 

Over the course of 16 days, the County was host to a fantastic array of apple-themed events, including cider-tasting, art exhibitions, apple fairs, historic city trails, and much more. 

The AppleFest kick-off in Hereford High Town saw hundreds flock to the centre, enjoying fresh apple juice and cider, children’s activities, and live music all throughout the day.

Hereford City Council are delighted to announce that following last year’s success, Hereford AppleFest is ripe and ready to return in 2023 with a whole new lineup of excitement! 

Fringe events will once again be taking place around the County, and the AppleFest kick-off is set to take place on 30 September in Hereford High Town, with more cider, perry and apple juice, more live music, and more activities. 

Hereford City Council and its partners hope you’ll join them in celebrating Herefordshire’s famous connection to the apple!
