Holiday Celebrations in Downtown Hendersonville

Warning: Information you find on this page may be outdated or incorrect.

The holiday season has officially begun in downtown Hendersonville! The streets and trees are adorned with decorations and lights, and many businesses are open late for shopping.

“The downtown lighting is an exciting event for us,” says Beth Carden of the Henderson County TDA. “We have caroling and shopping and community fellowship. We encourage families to come out and create memories.”

Mr. Claus will reside in the Santa House at Sixth and North Main streets until Christmas.

And many Main Street businesses will have extended evening hours this season as well. “It’s a great time to bring people downtown to enjoy Main Street and do some shopping,” says Lew Holloway of the Downtown Hendersonville organization.

The street lighting and Santa’s arrival are all part of Hendersonville’s Home for the Holidays events, which continue through the New Year.
