Guests enjoy FREE Admission to the Taste of Charlotte. You may purchase coins at the event at one of our many Festival Coin Booths, or you can pre-purchase your coins and pick them up when you arrive at the festival. Coins are good for all 3 days of the event.
Festival coins are used for Food Samples (from our 30+ Restaurants) as well as for Beverage (beer, wine, soda & water). Food samples are all priced between 1-3 Coins. Beverages are 2-4 Coins. Check the Restaurant Tab of our website to see how many coins you'll need for the samples you want to try!
Along with all of our local restaurants at Taste of Charlotte, we also have regional artists in our MarketPlace, presented by AT&T. Stop and listed to music on the Center Stage, presented by Chobanni - located at Trade & Tryon Streets. Be sure to bring the kids along so they can play on the many inflatables and kids activities throughout the event site. Feel like taking a break? Stop off in our Tavern at the Taste presented by Somersby Hard Cider for more live music on our Tavern Stage. Stick around for a cold drink and chat with friends!
Pre-Purchased Coins MUST be picked up at Coin Booth D, located across from the Center Stage at Trade & Tryon Streets.
Thank you and Have Fun!!
