There are multiple ways to arrive to the North Carolina Apple Festival but the link below is a town-wide map that will help you arrive safely to the festival.
For more specific directions click on the link below to go to Downtown Hendersonville, Inc. website where you can use their map to find directions from your location, to downtown Hendersonville for the Apple Festival.
The Trolley Company of Hendersonville will be running shuttles to downtown. The trolleys will offer transportation on September 2-4, 2011.
Their shuttles will run on Friday from 10 am to 7 pm; on Saturday from 10 am until 10:00 pm and on Sunday from 10:00 am until 7:00 pm. The cost is $2 for adults and $1 for children under 4. The trolley route goes from Jackson Park and drops off a block from Main Street at the parking lot at Third Avenue and King Street. There will be signs on Four Seasons Boulevard and Upward Road directing people to the trolley parking lot.
There are multiple parking lots throughout downtown Hendersonville that surrounds the Festival including free and fee-based parking. Many parking lots are operated by local non-profits and charge a nominal fee for parking. The North Carolina Apple Festival does not control these parking lots or their fees.
This year the Handicapped Parking is at the Visitor's Center. You can enter this parking area by turning left from Church Street (US 25 South) onto Barnwell Street. The Handicapped Parking area will be clearly marked on the left. Our thanks for the Henderson County Travel & Tourism for making this area available for handicapped parking and to the Hendersonville Shrine Club for manning it during the Festival.
