If you had to choose between the two events, which one would you attend and why?
TIA

Wow that is a tough decision.

Attend Charlotte Shout if you have an interest of various cuisines available in Charlotte.

Attend Festival In The Park for Good Casual Fun enjoying what Charlotte has to offer artistically .
I had a better time at this event than what I was expecting.
I went close to dusk and it was not to hot to enjoy
Tip park up on East Blvd Between Moes Southwest Grill and Showmars. It may seem like a hike but it will be better sitting in traffic going no where.

Maybe do both I only needed 2 hours at each

Have fun they are both good events

Festival in the Park hands down.
Not only is Freedom Park is great for kids without a festival, there is plenty of stuff for kids to enjoy
I was going to see what was going on this year but there website is really poking today but last year you have to go see the magician Houdini he is a motivational speaker magician.


Unless your kids are open to try new things in food I would be hesitant about there enjoyment of Charlotte Shout.

At Festival in the Park, they are planning a "family fun zone" which includes a rock wall, a ferris wheel, pony rides and a choo-choo train! That, plus the park playground equipment, will surely keep your kids entertained, vballer25!

Please note - even though Festival in the Park is held at Freedom Park, they do not allow pets during the festival.

See you at the Animal Care & Control Education Booth!
