The annual Henderson Tri-Fest is just a few months away and organizers are looking for local vendors to fill the streets of downtown Henderson throughout the three-day event.

What is Henderson Tri-Fest?

Henderson Tri-Fest is put on every year by the Henderson Breakfast Lions Club and is similar to the West Side Nut Club's annual Fall Festival. The event takes place all along Main Street in downtown Henderson on the third weekend of April and features several non-profit organizations along with other vendors setting up booths on both sides of the street and selling a variety of different food items and other goods. The event also features live entertainment, carnival games, and rides for everyone to enjoy.

The non-profits keep whatever profits they make during the event to use toward continuing their respective missions. The Henderson Breakfast Lions Club makes money by charging each organization a rental fee for a spot on the street and uses a portion of that money to plan for the following year's event, with the remaining funds being used to fund community projects and grants for individuals and organizations in Henderson County and the surrounding area.
