Have children to entertain, no worries, try out the HandsOn Children's Museum or Team ECCO...they've got a shark tank...need we say more?  Whether you're in town for a major event or live next door and just want to enjoy an evening out downtown Hendersonville is a year round destination. Plan a visit with us today!

Volunteers are key to our success!

Each year community-minded volunteers contribute thousands of hours to our successful Main Street program. There are plenty of ways to get involved;   join a committee, be one of the over 80 people needed to run Rhythm & Brews, track Bearfootin' artwalk bids, provide office help or even clean tulip bulbs!
