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.

The Non-Profit Interest Form must be submitted to our office by March 6, 2020 to be considered for that year’s event. A random drawing is done at the Board of Director’s March Meeting and agencies will be notified if they were selected to participate.

We will begin accepting Vendor Interest Forms for qualified Non-Profits in January of 2020. All applications must be received no later than March 6, 2020. The dates for this year’s event are September 4, 2020 through September 6, 2020 for most Non-Profits.
