What to expect

For over 60 years, Labor Day Weekend in Hendersonville, North Carolina holds one of the best known street fairs in the Carolinas: The Apple Festival. North Carolina is the seventh largest apple-producing state in the US, which alone is a reason to celebrate! In this street fair, you can stop by any of the 15 local apple farmers to purchase fresh apples any way you can imagine: fresh, caramel, candied, baked, sauced, you name it. And it’s more than just apples: picture over 200 vendors and shops and nonstop entertainment all weekend. Yes, that includes live music playing the the entire time! Make a stop at the Family Fun Zone for arts and crafts, inflatables, face painting and more. Catch the organic market on Sunday in the Historic 7th Avenue District. And finally, Monday is the day of the annual King Apple Parade, which takes place in the afternoon. The parade is the cherry, or should I say apple, on top of this fun-packed weekend. Who will be the float contest winner? Extra points are given for the use of apples. Be there to find out!
