This Incredible Apple Festival Is The Perfect Start To A North Carolina Fall

While we’re in the final few weeks of summer, apples are beginning to come into season in North Carolina’s ‘apple country’ of Hendersonville. The town is the largest apple producer in North Carolina (with the entire state ranking seventh in the nation), so it’s easy to see why the streets come to life on the first weekend of September for everyone celebrating both fall and apple season. This year, September 1st-4th everyone can start early and get a taste of fall at the 71st annual apple festival.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

The Apple Festival is a great way to say goodbye to summer and hello to fall. Have you visited before? It’s important to remember no pets are allowed and the festival is wheelchair accessible.
