Experience Hendersonville as a travel destination this holiday season
Drive-through light shows, wagon rides, tours, shopping and the Peppermint Bear Scavenger Hunt are some of the events and activities planned in downtown Hendersonville during the holiday season.
Peppermint Bear will take visitors on a fun-filled bear hunt through downtown, with event hosts following social distancing guidelines to provide enjoyable and safe experiences.
The focal point for downtown is the city’s majestic Christmas tree filled with colorful lights that stands tall in the plaza of the historic courthouse. The wide sidewalks of Main Street are adorned with planters that come to life in the evenings with twinkling lit star bursts along the serpentine street. Large green wreaths hang on the light posts with big red velvet bows for a special nostalgic touch.
Many restaurants in the greater Hendersonville area are offering festive seasonal menus during the holidays.
