CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Foodies and festivalgoers will have to wait a little longer to indulge at the Taste of Charlotte food festival, thanks to Hurricane Ian.

On Tuesday, event organizers announced that the festival is being postponed from this weekend to next weekend, Oct. 7-9.

Festival director Carrie Griffin said organizers have been keeping a close eye on the weather and due to the set-up and preparation time required, they wanted to go ahead and make a decision.

The three-day event offers samples from Charlotte-area restaurants, along with a mix of family entertainment, shopping, live music and activities for kids.

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

A large cup of coins costs $20 and contains 15 coins. A small cup costs $15 for seven coins. “Digital coins” are available for pre-purchase on the Taste of Charlotte app. Restaurant samples cost from one to four coins, and beverages cost from three to six coins.
