The 2024 Tehachapi Apple Festival

This annual event features tons of new apple related items and food. The festival is fun for everyone in the family, including a great “Kidzone,” with inflatables for all day fun. Other fun kid related activities including apple bobbing, balloon car races, carnival games, corn hole contest, golf putting, face painting, puppet show, plus more, many of them are FREE. Shoppers will love the hand-crafted local artisan gifts and apple related items. Local apple farmers will be selling apples and lots of other locally produced food products including apple pie, apple turnovers, apple nachos, and many other apple treats. There will be clothing, candles, home decor, baked goodies, kids toys, crocs, jewelry, and so much more. Live music will be enjoyed all day long in Centennial Plaza, where you can sit and enjoy your food and the music. Just outside of Centennial Plaza in the middle of Green Street you can cheer on the contestants in the Apple Pie Eating Contest on Saturday OR ENTER or watch the apple pie baking contest on Sunday. Saturday we feature an "Apple Drop" run by The Rotary Club and Lions Club of Tehachapi. You can purchase a rubber apple, which is dropped from a crane onto a target. Prizes are awarded to the closest to the bullseye. Over at the Tehachapi Event Center and Rodeo Grounds, the fun continues with a Carnival in town all weekend and an Apple Fest Rodeo on Saturday. Stay tuned for more fun additions to this Apple Festival weekend.
