September brings with it school, more comfortable weather and gorgeous scenery. But in Charlotte, it also brings two very fun festivals that have been a Charlotte tradition for some time. The 34th annual Yiasou Greek Festival, 9/8 - 9/11, and the 47th annual Festival in the Park, 9/23 – 9/25.
The Yiasou Greek Festival has become one of Charlotte’s largest cultural events. All of Charlotte anticipates this festival each year. Yiasou is the Greek word for Hello, Goodbye and Cheers. This Greek Festival features cultural exhibits, authentic Greek cuisine and pastries, entertainment, art, shopping and more. Everyone can be Greek at the 34th Annual Yiasou Greek Festival!
Festival in the Park brings good music, good art and good times to Charlotte from around the world. This fun filled festival promotes interest in the arts. See, hear, and learn from over 150 artists and crafts people who demonstrate and display their art. Nearly a thousand entertainers provide free ongoing performances at the main band shell and many stages surrounding it.
Come and listen to the sounds of "big band music" and wander below the lights that hang from exhibit tents. Great food and face painting for the kids along with street performers and artists make this a fun festival for all. And, Festival in the Park has been chosen as one of Sunshine Artists Magazine's 200 BEST festivals.
Grab some friends from your apartment in Charlotte and have some fun at two of the longest running festivals in the City.
