Celebrate Charlotte’s food scene at the first-ever Charlotte StrEATs Festival. The two-day festival will take place at Gateway Village in the heart of Uptown.
Charlotte StrEATs will kick off Friday with a free family night that will feature cooking demonstrations from local culinary students, food trucks, vendors, and kid-friendly activities.
On Saturday festival-goers will walk through a mini-map of the city organized by neighborhoods. Those who purchase Tasting Tickets will be able to taste their way through Charlotte’s neighborhoods. There will be free entertainment for those who attend Saturday’s festival without a tasting ticket. Attendees will be able to watch multiple cooking demonstrations on the main stage, shop small businesses, enjoy live music, sip on beverages from NoDa Brewing and Summit Seltzer, and purchase food from participating food trucks.
