The Taste of Charlotte Festival in Uptown is one of my absolute favorite local events. Walking around getting to sample awesome food and just enjoy Charlotte’s center city with music and entertainment in the midst of a relaxed atmosphere is very cool.
The weather usually isn’t cool since it IS June in the South 🙂
This year’s Taste of Charlotte event will kick off at 11am on Friday June 10th.
The festival’s hours are:
11am-11pm Saturday and
11am-6pm on Sunday
The festival takes place in Uptown Charlotte along Tryon St from MLK Jr Blvd to 6th Street, right in the heart of Center City.
Admission is Free, to purchase food or drinks you’ll need coins which are available for purchase at the festival (cash only!) or ahead of time online – Buy Taste of Charlotte Coins
If you do go to this year’s Taste of Charlotte, make sure to stop by and check out Divine Pies Bakery which will be located between Trade and 5th not far from the main stage.
Divine Pies is a local Charlotte area bakery that I wrote about a couple of years ago….simply delicious! We saw Agnes (the owner) at the Charlotte Regional Farmers market last year and I’m so excited that she’ll be attending the Taste of Charlotte – perfect place to sample some of her amazing pies!
One of my other local favorites will be there too…TCBY! They’ll be between 4th and Trade – so when you’re ready to cool down, try a little fro yo 🙂
