Like so many events, North Carolina’s largest food festival has been postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Taste of Charlotte and the Race to the Taste 5K had been scheduled to take place June 5-7 on Tryon Street in uptown Charlotte. According to the official website, it’s now set for mid-September:
- Friday, September 18th – 11:00 AM to 11:00 PM
- Saturday, September 19th – 11:00 AM to 11:00 PM
- Sunday, September 20th – 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM
The festival organizers are still accepting applications from restaurants and other businesses who would like to participate in this year’s event. It could be one way for those businesses to recoup some of the losses they incurred during the shutdown.
