“The apple is the loveliest of all fruits”, as the apple growers of Hendersonville always say. For the chance to see (and taste!) their sweet labor of love, come to the North Carolina Apple Festival! From September 2nd to the 5th, you’ll find apples of all shapes and sizes. Walk the street fair to try everything from cool apple cider slushies to warm apple turnovers, look at arts and crafts, and enjoy plenty of free entertainment, especially the King Apple Parade on Labor Day. It’s the tastiest way to spend your Labor Day weekend this mountain vacation - plus, you’ll love visiting charming downtown Hendersonville, close to many of Carolina Mornings’ rental cabins and homes!
