For the August 9 event, we will add a fun Classic Car Invitational.  Do you have a great old car in your garage?  Here’s your chance to dust it off and bring it out.  We have room for about a dozen cars, so reserve your spot soon! Contact Donna Rogers, 704.714.9379 to save your space.

Food truck events are gaining popularity in Charlotte and across the nation by providing great culinary delights in a fun setting.  Many Charlotte food trucks have been featured on the Food Network.

Several local food trucks will be parked in our lot serving up BBQ, gourmet sandwiches, vegetarian creations, pizza, cupcakes, and lots more!  Prices range from $5 - $10, and there will be something for all tastes.

We will have live music and a bounce park for children.
