Headliner artists have gathered, for the last eight years, to provide entertainment, fun and monies to the cities that host the Kinfolks Soul Food Festival. Charlotte, in its fifth year, benefits economically, socially, mentally and physically, on May 17, at Metrolina Fairgrounds, 7100 Statesville.

“It’s about family, education and the community. We bring more than great entertainment, more than a show. Not many shows contribute financially to the communities performed in,” said Kevin Fullard, event coordinator.

It’s a Love Train brought by The Whispers, Cameo will bring that Sparkle In Your Eye back, yeah, yeah, yeah, Ah, ha, Bootsy Collins is bringing that P-Funk, Lyfe Jennings IS BACK, Chante Moore’s Love’s Taken Over describes the festival and with Kelly Price, collectively makes this event priceless. The low ticket prices, $32-65, is even more appeasing.

Pat Williams, CEO and founder, said Kinfolks Foundation, Inc. fuses together the tradition of good times, good music and good food with an opportunity for an average of 10,000 consumers per market to engage with brand ambassadors and non-profit organizations dispensing invaluable free information. The festival provides employment for 200 community citizens, local soul food vendor opportunities, surrounding businesses experience sales increase and the music reduces anxiety, tension and stress.

Huggy Lowdown and Chris Paul, Tom Joyner Morning Radio Show team members, host this year’s festival which is sponsored by radio station, Old School 105.3, Compare Foods, Smart Wheels, Nature’s Greens and MGM Resorts.
