54th Annual Festival in the Park - Charlotte, NC

to Sep 23

54th Annual Festival in the Park - Charlotte, NC

From the official website:

54th Annual “Festival in the Park”
Friday, September 21, 2018 4:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Saturday, September 22, 2018 10:00 am – 9:30 pm
Sunday, September 23, 2018 11:00 am – 6:00 pm

Since 1964, Festival in the Park has been bringing good music, good art and good times to Charlotteans and visitors from around the world. The sounds of “big band music” drift across Freedom Park’s lake whose still surface reflects the lights strung from Camelot exhibit tents.

The scents of a variety of food fill the air, as small children with painted faces happily produce their first art work. Others find the many talented artists who can create an original work of art to grace their home or to give as the perfect gift.

First time visitors are taken by the simple, relaxed atmosphere. Old timers marvel at the freshness of each year’s offerings, as memories from long ago festivals are revisited. Unlike most festivals our lighting system allows us to continue into the night.
