How about a taste of Charlotte?

One of my very first visits ever to Charlotte was during the Taste of Charlotte event. The friend whom I was visiting and I hit up Tryon Street to see hundreds of people who had come out to eat, drink, and enjoy live music in the center of the city. The smells and sounds were intoxicating! So whether you’re a native, a newbie, or just visiting, next weekend’s Taste of Charlotte will be a fun way to check out the sights and sounds of our Queen City.

date: June 68
time: 11am-11pm (Sunday until 6pm)

Check out the lineup for the center stage, which will be set up right in the middle of Tryon Street. But don’t spend all of your time there. Usually there are lots of things going on, including street performers, dancing, and magicians who come out to showcase their talent. There’s no cost for admission, but of course bring a few dollars to try the various restaurants and vendors at their tents. Taste of Charlotte was one of the many things that hooked me into falling in love with the unique culture that the Queen City has to offer. I hope it will do the same for you.
