Celebrate autumn with the Indiana Dunes Apple Festival at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore’s historic Bailly Homestead / Chellberg Farm. Fun is the theme of the weekend interleaved with the celebration of the all American Apple.

Enjoy lots of fall seasonal activities such as tractor-pulled hayrides, a Kid’s Corner with games and crafts, and even apple-chucking. Local musicians will provide continuous entertainment and the Northwest Indiana Storytellers will be spinning tales. Then help make cider using an apple press, learn how to cook apples for applesauce and apple butter, ferment apples into vinegar, make apple pomanders and discover dozens of other uses for apples. Free tasting of most of these products will be available. Or, purchase lunch or a snack from one of several food vendors and make a day of it.
