The North Carolina Apple Festival is a four-day celebration, held during the Labor Day weekend, August 31st – September 3rd.  The festival recognizes the importance of the apple industry to Henderson County and North Carolina. Festival-goers can choose from a variety of events which feature a street fair on Historic Main Street and surrounding event venues with continuous free entertainment, arts & crafts, local apple growers selling apple products, children’s & youth activities, special shows, exhibits, open houses, festival food, and, to top it all off, the King Apple Parade. Apple growers will be selling apples and delicious goodies throughout the festival.  Some of the other festivities happening during the Apple Festival include apple breakfasts, Gem & Mineral Spectacular, children’s activities, and the Western North Carolina Air Museum Open House.
