Big Apple Fest

Big Apple Fest Information

The Big Apple Fest highlights Oneida Culture and History in a fun and inviting fall festival where most of the activities are free. Folks tour Oneida’s five fully-restored historic log homes, play games, see live animals, ride horse-drawn wagons and are entertained by Rhea the Trick Horse. Food is available through vendors and the farmer’s market. Big Apple Fest visitors hop on a shuttle from Cultural Heritage to the orchard to pick their own apples.

Oneida Nation created an experience to remind folks:

1) the Oneida people came from the New York territory, “The Big Apple”; and

2) that Oneida apple orchards were burned down after the Revolutionary War in retribution forstanding with the colonists.

Big Apple Fest emerged from this creative thinking.
