Events in Henderson
Arts in the Alley
The Henderson Arts Commission sponsors Arts in the Alley the first Thursday of each month in the late spring, summer, and early fall months. Located downtown, Arts in the Alley vendors sell everything from handmade crafts, decor, and artwork to soap, while area musicians are also invited to perform and entertain visitors. Food is provided from local vendors. If you’re in town for one of these events, be sure to stop by and check out the local talent that Henderson has to offer.
The Henderson BBQ Festival is the most delicious, annual event that you’ll ever attend. The main feature of the festival is the barbecue pit where workers prepare pulled pork sandwiches, smoked chickens, and ribs. Food trucks are set up to provide delicious fried sweets like funnel cakes, fried pies, fried Oreos, and fried Twinkies. Exhibits for arts and craft vendors are set up, and a stage is set up for talent shows, concerts, and performances from local musicians. Make plans to be in Henderson during September to enjoy everything the Barbecue Festival has to offer.
