69th Annual North Carolina Apple Festival Starts September 4, 2015

bildeIt’s that time of year again! The 69th Annual NC Apple Festival begins Friday, September 4th! The Apple Festival is an annual event located on Main Street in downtown Hendersonville, NC.  If you love all things apple, this is the place for you!!


Local farmers bring every kind of apple you could ask for as well as goodies such as apple cider, fried apple pies, apple dumplings, and funnel cakes with warm apple toppings! If you need a little something to eat without apples, there are plenty of food trucks and stands to choose from, offering a wide variety from salads to gyros.

A pancake breakfast kicks the Festival off Friday morning followed by an Opening Ceremony. There are non-stop events including an 8-k run, car show, shag dancing, and live music and performances daily.  As always there is the amazing street fair! Sidewalk sales and home-made arts and crafts will be displayed up and down Main Street along with the local apple vendors!

There’s plenty of fun for the kids too! A kiddie carnival section has ticketed rides and inflatables as well as games where they can win prizes!


The entertainment runs from 10am-10pm while the street fair will be available 10am-8pm. On Monday the fair wraps up with the King Apple Parade beginning at 2:30pm.
A detailed event schedule is available online as well as on their Facebook page.

Make plans to join us at the NC Apple Festival in downtown Hendersonville this Labor Day weekend for some fun, shopping, and delicious locally grown apples!!!
