Set in New Cumberland, the annual Apple Festival is held in late September, and has been a staple of the city’s event calendar for over 25 years. Located along Bridge Street, the Apple Festival is an all day festival featuring live music, apple pie contests, arts and crafts, and of course, plenty of apples. Grab a candy apple and dance the day away in New Cumberland.

Carlisle is known for its car shows – most of which are held at the Carlisle Fairgrounds.
