One of the first big outdoor events of the year, the Henderson Tri-Fest, has arrived and is happening this April. I hope you're hungry.

What is Henderson Tri-Fest?

Henderson Tri-Fest is a yearly event put on by the Henderson Breakfast Lions Club - it is very similar to the West Side Nut Club's annual Fall Festival, just on a slightly smaller scale. Tri-Fest takes place all along Main Street in downtown Henderson on the third weekend of April (this year it's 4/19-4/21) and features booths from several non-profit organizations along with other vendors - selling all types of delicious food items along with other goodies. The event also features live entertainment, carnival games, and rides for everyone to enjoy.

Tri-Fest is a great fundraiser for these non-profits as they keep whatever profits they make during the event, allowing them to continue their respective missions. It's also a fundraiser for the Henderson Breakfast Lions Club, which 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.
