Taste of Charlotte 2015


We had a great time at the Taste of Charlotte this past weekend. We enjoyed meeting a lot of great people from all over the country, and a few from other countries. We handed out well over 1,000 free samples of Glory Foods Seasoned Green Beans, Fried Apples and Seasoned Blackeye Peas!

We also gave out free samples of #HailToKale Chocolate Cupcake. We ran out of that delicious Hail To Kale Chocolate Cupcake before we ran out of crowns, but people loved the recipe so we gave them a crown anyway.

The Glory Foods Red Pepper was also with us, walking around and talking to people about how she adds flavor to many of our products. We even have video of her in the PNC Bank Virtual Wallet Savings Engine trying to #AchieveMore.

This year was the 17th Annual Taste of Charlotte Festival. The festival is a free event for the whole family, in the heart of uptown Charlotte. It covers five city blocks and is in fact Charlotte’s largest outdoor food festival. The event was held June 5th-7th from 11 a.m. - 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Sunday.

The festival is a broad mix of family entertainment, unique shopping, live music, kid’s activities, and a wide array of specialty beer and fine wine, along with more than 100 menu items for sampling from a collection of Charlotte’s best restaurants. There are also a ton of activities for kids including interactive play areas.

The event featured two live stages, over 100 booths of restaurants and sponsors.
The main stage featured local and regional bands playing live music, as well as other entertainment throughout the weekend. Food samples at the festival can be purchased with festival coins; however, our samples were FREE!

We look forward to returning next year for the Taste of Charlotte 2016. Hope to see you there!
