Thanks to its growing popularity, the festival has expanded to include both Main Street and Broad Street where you will find over 200 vendors of all kinds, homemade cakes, pies and other goodies, live entertainment, merchant sidewalk sales, a great children’s area and booths hosted by various charity and civic organizations in and around Mooresville and Lake Norman.

 

Mooresville Race City Festival 2008

Civic organizations like my Mooresville Lake Norman Exchange Club have booths handing out information as we did about non-profits like our child abuse prevention SCAN Center of Iredell County. Of course, there are plenty of distractions that come along unexpectedly!

Many of the booths are Main Street are local and regional artists selling arts and crafts of all kinds.

 

Historic Turner's Hardware Store

If you really want a glimpse of the past, don’t miss visiting D.E. Turner’s Hardware store which was opened in 1898! Last year they not only had a great variety of the classic red wagons but they were selling bottles of locally made root beer and various homemade canned goods.

Speaking of food, besides some wonderful homemade goodies, you will find food vendors selling such things as the ever so decadent funnel cakes, kettle corn, turkey legs, hot dogs and fresh lemonade. This is not the day to be counting calories!

 

Main Street Mooresville During Race City Festival

Businesses offer all sorts of free goodies for children and adults; from face painting to drink caddies. There is always a children’s Fun Zone where there are plenty of activities to keep kids busy and happy!

I love working at the booths because I can sit back and watch friends, families and visitors go by. One year I sat in the Mooresville Museum’s booth and had a great time meeting many of the descendants of the original families of Mooresville and hearing stories about times long ago.

Stage for Jazz Behind Soirees

There are always several stages scattered around where you can listen to a variety of live music, watch performances of all kinds, especially of local school children. New last year there was an area behind Soiree’s Restaurant that was set up with a stage for more contemporary bands of all kinds.

Parking is available in various spots around the downtown as well as side streets. Come early and spend the day!
