The Apple Harvest Festival In North Carolina Is A Classic Fall Tradition

This year has taken quite a toll on annual festivals in North Carolina. We’ve missed them and hope things get back to normal very soon. However, one festival, the annual Apple Harvest Festival in Waynesville (taking place this Saturday, October 17th) is still on the calendar – albeit with a slightly modified agenda. If you’ve been missing festivals as much as we have, hit the road this weekend to Waynesville to a festival that’s implemented socially-distant measures to help keep visitors, vendors, and the community safe.

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:

Admission to Apple Harvest Daze in Waynesville, North Carolina, is absolutely free.

On your way into or out of town, be sure to head over to Big Creek Country Store. They don’t make ’em like this one anymore!
