Charlotte’s festival season is upon us and this weekend it’s all about motor sports. The annual Food Lion Speed Street Festival in Uptown starts tomorrow at noon and runs through Saturday (May 27th – May 29th) until 11 pm each night. Come share in the “Cars, Stars and Guitars” festivities. There will be plenty of food vendors, entertainment, and all sorts of fun activities for the entire family. The best part is that admission is free.
The weekend setup has already begun. Trailers are moving in and vendors are organizing their booths just in time for Thursday’s kick-off. In its 16th year this annual festival commemorates the May races at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, NC. It’s a showcase of motor sports with guest appearances of Sprint Cup Drivers, an assembly of NASCAR show cars, and two stages of non-stop entertainment and even some in the streets.
The streets will be packed with everyone having a good time, so come join in on the fun. Keep in mind that many roads will be blocked off as you make your way into the city. To view the event map click here. To see the complete event schedule click here.
