Let's have an Awesome Adventure and check out the Taste of Charlotte Festival in uptown. Here's your chance to sample over 90+ items from area restaurants. The festival has free admission. In addition to the food there's 2 stages with live music, dance performances, and other entertainment. I thought this would be the perfect event for an early Saturday evening and afterwards our group can hang out in Uptown. Here's a link to the website http://www.tasteofcharlotte.com/ if you'd like to check it out.
The way the festival works is you purchase "Taste of Charlotte" coins and then you can redeem them for samples of food. A large cup of 15 coins costs $20.
Saturday's Main Stage Schedule:
11:00 am - King Tiger Taekwondo (in front of stage) 12:00 pm - Coming Up Brass 3:30 pm - A Dancer's Love School of Dance 4:00 pm - Jewels of the Caravan Belly Dancers 4:30 pm- Keata's Performing Arts Studio 5:00 pm - Carolina Dance Explosion! 5:30 pm - The Dance Company 6:00 pm - The Dance District 6:30 pm - ACES Dance Company 7:00 pm - Queen City Dance Out 7:30 pm - Jewels of the Caravan Belly Dancers 8:30pm - PUSHH
I set the meeting time for this event at 5:30pm because I wanted to walk around, check out the vendors, try some food, and be at the stage around 7:30 to see the belly dancers performance. If anyone would like to get there earlier to see some of the other performers just let me know. I've set the meeting point for this event at Chima and we can meet in their upstairs bar... it should be easier to meet up as a group then go into the festival plus I love their Caipirinha drinks there. If you're having trouble finding the group please feel free to call or text me at 336-287-8474.
