Welcome to Historic Downtown Hendersonville, NC

Historic Downtown Hendersonville is more than just a business district. It is the heart of an economically and culturally vibrant mountain community. Take any day of the year to walk the 16 blocks that constitute Historic Downtown Hendersonville and you'll find a place bustling with the activity of work and play. Cruise, on foot or in your car, the distinctive serpentine Main Street for an introduction to our mix of specialty shops, art galleries, funky-to-formal restaurants and vibrant entertainment venues all while enjoying free outdoor Wi-Fi. Whether it is serving as the core of the North Carolina Apple Festival over Labor Day weekend, kicking off spring with the Tulip Extravaganza and Garden Jubilee or highlighting the holidays with the Holiday Tree Lighting, downtown is the year round center for celebrating the community's heritage and diversity.
