Event description


Yee Haw!

Join us for a day of Beauty Hunting for your home and life. Shop over 50 unique, curated vendors from all over the South, we've got pickers and junkers, antiquers and painters and a little bit of everything in between. We promise you will leave inspired!

Plan on staying awhile, there's room to roam, sit and listen to music (we're talking banjos and some AMAZING voices!) and eat at the food trucks! Feel free to bring a quilt or yard chair and stay all day!

Nest Fest is held 20 Minutes east of Charlotte, NC (just 10 miles off I-485) in the farming community of Midland. This is the third year that Myquillyn and Chad Smith will host Nest Fest on their 12 acre property where they live.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?


What if it rains?

this event is rain or shine, start praying for great weather right now okay?!

What if I can't come, can I pick up my book another time?

We we only be available to hand out books the day of Nest Fest from 10-5. If something happens and you can't come, give your ticket to someone who can come out and pick up your book for you.

Can I get the preorder bonuses if I buy a Nest Fest ticket that comes with a book?

The preorder bonuses are special perks you receive if you order a book from a retailer. Nest Fest tickets include an exclusive, crazy discount on the book (retails for $25 and Nest Fest tickets are normally $10) we are so happy to get to offer this, but we are unable to include the bonuses.

Want the bonuses too? We don't blame you--the 4 seasons classes are a $116 value and so tranformative for your home! Go ahead and preorder a book from a retailer and claim your bonues, then you'll have an extra book to give to a friend. More info here.
