Taste of Charlotte Festival


Taste of Charlotte presented by Food Lion is the largest annual festival held in Uptown Charlotte on 6 blocks of Tryon St. We block off the streets and bring local restaurants to you! Each restaurant features 3 menu items for you to Taste, so hundreds of new tastings! There's no cost to walk up and down the festival grounds, but you will need to purchase coins to taste all the food and beverage goodies. Grab your coins, a festival brochure map, and GET STARTED! Coin Booths located at every intersection. Best of the Taste judging occurs on Friday and later that evening winners are announced for different food categories. Cold Beer, New Wine and more beverages in the Tavern at the Taste and Wine Cellar. Visit our 4 stages with live music and entertainment all weekend long. Kids activities are peppered throughout the event site, and take coins for rides, or get a wristband for unlimited rides, slides, and more! Live Chef's prepare delicious recipes in the Demo Kitchen. Meet, Eat, & Drink in the Picnic Area. Unique local shopping in the Marketplace. Sunday Family Fun Day will host a Charlotte Characters Meet & Greet. It's your chance to try a little of everything all in one spot in Uptown Charlotte!
