Bridgeville Apple Scrapple Festival 2023

Next Event:
Friday, October 13, 2023

Delaware's fun and family-friendly celebration of the state's favorite breakfast treat has grown from 2,500 visitors in 1992 to over 20,000 today. Join in the fun starting Friday evening with the carnival, food court and a "Little Miss Apple Scrapple" pageant at 6:30 p.m. Things start up again on Saturday morning with carnival rides, kids’ games, live entertainment, car show, trade show, craft shows and delicious food vendors including: apple dumplings, scrapple sandwiches, oyster sandwiches, hamburgers and hotdogs, barbecue beef sandwiches, ice cream, and much more.

The festival began almost thirty years ago, when several of Bridgeville's finest began discussing ways of promoting the town and the agriculture industry that is so prevalent in western Sussex County. Some of the best apples around are grown nearby at T.S. Smith and Sons Farm, and since agriculture is a leading industry in the area, it seemed like a good idea to showcase them. It’s hard to drive through Bridgeville during the summer and NOT notice the distinctive smell of scrapple being processed. RAPA Scrapple was incorporated in 1926 and has been producing those tasty blocks of scrapple ever since. So… the Apple Scrapple Festival was born.

"Apple Scrapple" has become a major fundraiser for local community organizations and helps elevate awareness of the agricultural profession in lower Delaware.
