NC Apple Festival street scene

Hendersonville stands out with a pedestrian-friendly downtown, distinctive
hiking trails, outdoor adventure, family activities, a thriving culinary scene, and a
collection of wineries, breweries, and cideries that comprise the popular Cheers!
The arts are celebrated at studios and galleries on three Blue Ridge Crafts Trails
and with Broadway-style shows at the renowned Flat Rock Playhouse.
Agritourism plays a key role, especially from early August through the middle of
October when dozens of apple orchards invite visitors to pick apples, sample
fresh cider and baked goods, and enjoy activities like wagon rides, corn mazes,
pumpkin patches and apple cannons. Fall is a popular time to visit
Hendersonville, but in this “City of 4 Seasons,” you are sure to find activities to fill
your day in winter and even on rainy days.
