Festival in the Park ushers in the fall season with its 59th year opening Friday afternoon, September 22, 2023 through Sunday, September 24, 2023. This family oriented outdoor festival will welcome over 100,000+ festivalgoers. Held in picturesque Freedom Park, the Granddaddy festival of Charlotte is partnering with strategic area businesses, media outlets and local entertainment to guarantee an outstanding venue. 180 artists local, regional and national will exhibit.

We hope you will consider becoming one of our cornerstone concessionaires for this 2023 event. Our aim is to offer a vast menu of food at a fair value. During the selection process, we will look for concessionaires who provide one or more of the following: the traditional festival fare, a more health conscious menu, and unique specialty items. Concessionaire fees range from $1,500 to $5,000 per location.

Once you’ve completed the application portion and signed the contract, return it to the Concessionaire Director’s attention at the Festival’s address. Once you’ve been accepted, 50% of your reservation fee will be due within 14 days of notification. The final 50% will be due by July 15, 2023.
