Festival in Freedom Park in Charlotte, September 24th, 25th, 26th & 27th 2009.
Since 1964 , Festival in the Park has been bringing popular and eclectic music, arts and crafts, and family entertainment to Charlotteans and visitors from around the South. The sounds of singers, dancers, storytellers and more drift across Freedom park while the lake reflects lights strung from Camelot exhibition tents. The smell of popcorn and festival-food fill the air as children with painted faces happily produce their first artwork. First time visitors are amazed by the variety of arts, crafts, and entertainment, old-timers marvel at the freshness combined with the tradition of each year's offerings.
