Charlotte doesn’t have a lot of long-running traditions so when an anniversary like this roll around, it’s cause for celebration. Festival in the Park hits double nickels this weekend.

Since 1964, the festival has showcased the work of local and regional artists and musicians in Freedom Park. Festival in the Park also offers lots of tasty food and fun activities for kids. It’s a good place to get a head start on holiday shopping, too. More details below.
