Festival in the Park

*** Note from the Festival in the Park organizers 9/22/16:

Freedom Park is about 4 miles from center city Charlotte. Last night's unfortunate events were limited to a few blocks in the city center. No other Charlotte neighborhoods, including Freedom Park were impacted. The Festival remains, as it does every year, in close contact with local law enforcement other partners to ensure the safety and security of our vendors, artists, volunteers and patrons.


CHARLOTTE, NC —  Since 1964, Festival in the Park has been bringing good music, good art and good times to Charlotteans and visitors from around the world. This year the Festival will be held on September 23-25, 2016 and is designed to promote and stimulate interest in the arts. It provides the opportunity for all to see, hear, and learn from over 180 artists and crafts people who actively demonstrate and display their art.

Festival in the Park was selected as one of Southeast Tourism Society's Top 20 Events for the month of September!  In past years, Festival in the Park has also been chosen as one of Sunshine Artists Magazine's 200 BEST festivals.
