Apple Chill is a festival in North Carolina. The event takes place in late April. Food vendors, crafters and a kids zone attract more 10,000 people to the host city. The festival began in 1972 in Chapel Hill, where the name is a Spoonerism. It ran for over 30 years until 2006 when shootings forced the town to formally disband it. The nickname "After Chill" was used to describe the drinking and cruising that continued late into the night after the festival was over.

From 2007 until 2010 the festival was held at the Roxboro Motorsports Dragway in Roxboro. Since 2011 the festival is held at the Fayetteville Motor Sports Park in Fayetteville, North Carolina.


The main event features drag racing as well as a parade of brightly colored motorcycles and cars. Many Jazz and R&B acts conclude the event.
