Historic Downtown Mooresville, Lake Norman News, Events and Celebrations

Race City Festival / Lake Norman Festival 2011 is this Saturday!

Lake Norman Festival

If you haven’t visited Historic Downtown Mooresville  recently, this Saturday, May 14th, is a great opportunity to explore and enjoy the many new shops and restaurants  while strolling down Main Street during the 29th annual Race City Festival.

Formally called the Lake Norman Festival, this very local event has always been one of my favorites.  It offers a chance to experience truly Southern small-town fun combined with the unique entertainment and community organizations and businesses that make living in Lake Norman so special.  From funnel cakes to huge turkey legs, traditional Southern festival vendors will be there as will ” more than 150 vendors, artist displays, live demonstrations, downtown merchant sidewalk sales, a children’s area, international foot court and live entertainment” according to a recent article in the Mooresville Tribune.

Sponsored by the Mooresville-South Iredell Chamber of Commerce, Saturday’s event runs from 9:00am to 3:00pm on both Main and Broad Streets in  Historic Downtown Mooresville.

Lake Norman’s 2010 Race City Festival is this Saturday!

Mooresville's Race City Festival 2009

One of my favorite things about living in Lake Norman NC is the incredible variety of community “festivals” going on all around the state throughout the spring, summer and fall.  Like most of our area “festivals”, the Race City Festival held in Historic Downtown Mooresville is a family-friendly event filled with a great variety of booths hosted by artists, local charitable and civic organizations, church groups, delicious foods, creative arts and craft vendors and so much more!

This year’s theme for our “Race City Festival” is “A Celebration of Mooresville Arts and Culture” and it will include 180 booths of food, arts and crafts, businesses and non-profits plus live music and demonstrations.

The festivities begin at 9:00 am on both Main Street and Broad Street and continues through 3 pm.  Many local businesses take advantage of the crowds and offer sidewalk sales.  In the past there has also been a number of groups selling home-made baked and canned goods. Continue reading
