HENDERSONVILLE, NC (WLOS) –
The NC Apple Festival was canceled last year due to the pandemic.

The people who showed up on the second day of the festival – Saturday, September 4th – enjoyed everything from handicrafts to food, carnival rides, concert entertainment and more.

The festival highlights the local apple growers and sellers in the area known as “Apple Country” as apples are in season.
It’s an annual tradition for many families in Henderson County – and beyond.
“I think it’s a fun, family-oriented festival. It’s just so many different things. It’s mostly free, you have a lot of entertainment, you have the apples,” said Michael Arrowood, visitor services coordinator for the Henderson County Tourism Development Agency. “People come back year after year. We have had generations of people who raise their children and then their children bring their children.”
