Applefest 2017

Sunday, 22 October • 12:00 - 16:00 • FIS Oberursel Campus

Applefest at FIS is...

  • Open to the public so bring your friends!
  • A fun-filled family event sponsored by the PTG.
  • An opportunity for school service projects and student groups to raise funds.
  • To honor the work of the students engaged. Other youth groups in our community, who directly benefit students of FIS, are also invited to participate in this event.
  • To place the Upper School Houses in the spotlight. Upper School students are encouraged to show community spirit by wearing their House Colors.


Entertainment opportunities abound at Applesfest. Live music and dance performances will take place on the main stage throughout the event. If you would like to be added to the entertainment roster, please sign up here.

Kids can choose from an array of games and activities including a bouncy house, face painting, and crafts in the Auditorium. And, of course, what Applefest would be complete without the Dunk Tank? Your favorite teachers, principals and Head of School will be bravely waiting their turn to be dunked.

Food & Drink

Apple is the star at this event! From apple muffins to apple wine, you'll find lots of tasty treats. Also on offer will be hot dogs, hamburgers, brats and more. Stop by the beer tent or enjoy wine from the region, or taste juice freshly pressed from the apple press. You can also visit our Bake Sale, where FIS families offer their best apple recipe in the Applefest Bake Sale and Contest!
