The Ballantyne Festival: Autumn in the Park Featuring Charlotte’s Best Oyster Roast is a one-day festival in Charlotte that seeks to provide a fun, autumn-themed event for all Charlotte’s citizens. It’s free to the public, totally family-friendly, and includes tons of events and attractions. The Ballantyne Festival will take place October 10th from 11am to 9pm at Ballantyne District Park.
Everything about the Ballantyne Festival screams fall, from the chili cook-off to hayrides to pumpkin painting. Craft tables will be set up for kids, as well as inflatable bounce houses and games, but there’s plenty of fun for adults too. The oyster roast is sure to please seafood-loving adults, and the festival will feature lots of beer sellers.
There’s also plenty of live entertainment, including four local bands headlined by acoustic rock group Simplified. And the music isn’t all that’s local—Ballantyne is a huge supporter of local businesses in Charlotte. Tons of Charlotte businesses with a passion for community and personal interaction set up booths in Exhibitor Alley.
Net proceeds from Ballantyne go to local charities and nonprofits. It’s a great cause and fun time, so don’t miss it! We here at Larry Jay Mitsubishi love it!
