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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

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.
