The North Carolina Apple Festival each year has 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 may 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. Any raffle items must be approved by the Apple Festival before being allowed at the Festival.

The Non-Profit Interest Form must be submitted to our office between January 1, 2025 and March 31, 2025, to be considered for the 2025 Apple Festival. A random drawing is done at the Board of Director’s April Meeting and agencies will be notified if they were selected to participate.
