Fall Has Arrived in Chilhowie Virginia

Friday, September 22nd, 2017 by Jaimie Hooker


The quaint town of Chilhowie, Virginia hosts their annual Chilhowie Community Apple Festival every September. The festival began in the early 1950’s as a way to improve the town and provide farmers and local businesses a way to increase exposure and gain revenue while remaining a family friendly event. Of course apples are a staple crop to the area, hence the name of the festival. Each fall as the air turns a bit cooler the apples are ready for harvest.

Today, the Chilhowie Community Apple Festival has certainly grown over the years into an annual event that the town and surrounding areas cannot wait to attend! There is something for each member of the family. All of the funds raised for the festival are distributed back into the community to help keep the blossoming town growing.

Wanting to support the local community and town, Tar Heel Basement Systems will be a participating vendor at this year’s festival! Brand Ambassador, Jessica, will be present– providing attendees with information and educational literature regarding their home’s basement, crawl space, foundation or slab concerns. You can even sign-up for a free estimate appointment while attending the festival. Look for the bright yellow tent and you’ve found us!
