The North Carolina Apple Festival sets aside 10% of its booth spaces for Non-Profit Agencies headquartered in Henderson County with the majority of funds raised spend in our community.
Non-Profits must supply their own 10 x 10 tent and tables and chairs needed for the weekend. Most Non-Profits participate Friday through Sunday from 10: 00 am until 8:00 pm. We will also ask some Non-Profits to have their booth on Monday from 10:00 am until after the Parade finishes. The fees are $100 for just handing out information and $200 for those who are selling merchandise, tickets or other items. You may not sell or give away screen printed t-shirts, hats, or water.
The Non-Profit Interest Form must be submitted to our office by April 1st of each year to be considered for that year’s event. A random drawing is done at the Board of Director’s April Meeting and agencies will be notified if they were selected to participate.
We will begin taking Vendor Interest Forms from interested Non-Profits, who meet our qualifications as described in the first paragraph, beginning in January of 2018. All Forms must be returned to the NC Apple Festival Office no later than April 1, 2018 to be considered. .
