The small-town charm of Hendersonville will make you feel that you are, Home for the Holidays! Experience the joy of the holidays, sprinkled with excitement for the entire family. Let Hendersonville become your Hometown this holiday season.

The unique stores along Main Street are decked out with Christmas decorations for the season. Large wreaths with big red bows hang from streetlights, along with twinkling lights and decorations in the planters that line the serpentine street.

The area abounds with holiday events such as the Flat Rock Playhouse productions, an iceless-skating rink, wagon rides, craft shows, holiday concerts, Christmas parade, and many other events for all ages. There is a new activity this year, called the Peppermint Bear Scavenger Hunt. Peppermint Bear will take you on a fun-filled bear hunt through downtown Hendersonville.

Discover the Winter Wonderland, located in the Visitor Center’s parking lot during the holiday season. The Centerpiece of the Wonderland is an iceless skating rink. The synthetic surface is made from special polymers so it can be enjoyed year-round in any temperature. It also offers curling, which Olympic sport in which players slides stones on the ice towards a target. Enjoy roasting a marsh mellow for a tasty s’more, taking a wagon ride around downtown, or playing a game of corn hole or Jenga.

The holidays are a time for celebration and dining with friends and family. Many restaurants in the greater Hendersonville area offer festive seasonal menus during the holidays. The Holiday Dining Guide list restaurants open on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Be sure to make reservations!

Check the calendar of events on the Henderson County Tourism Development Authority web site for dates, times and locations of each event.
