Nappanee Apple Festival

Pull & Jamboree

Tractor & Truck Pull and Diesel Jamboree




The Nappanee Apple Festival and the Nappanee Power From The Past are pleased to announce a new partnership. 

For over a decade The Nappanee Apple Festival has hosted a Fall Truck & Tractor Pull and more recently a Spring Diesel Jamboree at the Callendar Sportsplex on Country Road 7 in Nappanee. Similarly, Power From The Past has long sought to preserve the legacy and traditions of agriculture by hosting annual events in our community centered around these traditions while also providing a family friendly environment. It only seems natural to combine forces to offer a brand new pulling event.

The new and improved Diesel Jamboree and Fall Truck & Tractor pull will now take place on the new Power From the Past show grounds (formerly The Farm at Amish Acres) located at 1600 West Market Street in Nappanee, Indiana. Additionally, the Diesel Jamboree will move to a new date of June 15, 2019. Moving forward, this event will take place the second Saturday in June each year. Just in time for Father’s Day! (hint, hint)

The Fall Pull will remain the second Saturday in September (the 14th) and will continue to serve as a prelude to the Nappanee Apple Festival and Antique Tractor, Engine and Toy Show held September 19-21. 

As these events have continued to grow throughout the years, it has been our cumulative desire to host an event steeped in the strong agricultural tradition of Nappanee while also providing a family friendly atmosphere. We are excited about the new partnership and the new location and look forward to growing this event bigger and better than it has ever been before. 

We look forward to seeing you all on June 15th for the Antique Car, Truck & Tractor Drive & Cruise-in, Diesel Jamboree and Hot Air Balloon Festival.
