Hendersonville, North Carolina

Hendersonville: Garden Spot of the NC Mountains

Extra-wide sidewalks, lots of benches and a landscaped Main Street in downtown Hendersonville form the perfect setting each May for the Garden Jubilee Festival. This popular event happens Memorial Day weekend, May 27-28 and has served as the unofficial kickoff to summer for the last 24 years. This event is recognized by the Southeast Tourism Society as a Top 20 regional event. Garden Jubilee makes a nice centerpiece to a Hendersonville getaway.

The festival encompasses eight blocks of Main Street with vendors displaying practically everything garden related. Dozens of nurseries offer plants for sale, ranging from colorful flowers to verdant shrubbery and vegetables, herbs and hard-to-find plants.

“We see visitors from all over the Southeast at this event,” says Hendersonville tourism director Beth Carden. “It’s a beautiful event that focuses on gardening at a time of year when people are starting to work in their yards and gardens.”

Hendersonville is home to the Crest of the Blue Ridge Orchard Trail, which takes visitors to 20 orchards, produce markets and fruit stands throughout Henderson County. The county is the seventh-largest apple producing county in the nation and is becoming a leader in the production of hard cider. Three cideries are now open in the Hendersonville area, with a fourth in the works.

Hendersonville is also home to one of the more easily-accessible grand views in the Carolina mountains – Jump Off Rock, which features a small park leading to a granite rock that offers spectacular panoramas of the Blue Ridge and Great Smoky mountains. On a clear day, four states – North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee – are visible from this spot on the outskirts of downtown Hendersonville.
