Taste of Charlotte food festival returns to Tryon Street

CHARLOTTE — Charlotte’s largest food festival will return to Tryon Street in Uptown this weekend.

Taste of Charlotte, a three-day festival featuring Charlotte-area restaurants offering samples, along with a mix of family entertainment, shopping, live music, and activities for kids, is scheduled to take place from Friday through Sunday.

In 2021 and 2022, the event moved from Tryon Street to Truist Field and was held in the fall.

“It is such an exciting opportunity for us to move the festival back to where it began, on the streets in Uptown Charlotte. We look forward to bringing back many of the features that helped make the Food Lion Taste of Charlotte the standard for festivals in the Carolinas,” the Facebook post read.

According to event organizers, crowd-favorite activities are returning, including live music and entertainment on the main stage, cooking demonstrations, street performances, and the popular Tavern at the Taste and Wine Cellar.

Admission to the festival is free. Festivalgoers can purchase coins for restaurant samples, drinks, and activities.

Festival hours are from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
