Event description


It's year four of The Nest Fest and we'd love to have you join us!

The Nest Fest is held on Myquillyn (The Nester) and Chad's 12 acre property 20 Minutes east of Charlotte, NC. Yep, this is where they live and it's just 10 miles off I-485 in the farming community of Midland.

Shop over 50 unique and carefully curated vendors from all over the South. This year our vendors will have jewelry home goods, apparel, soaps, candles, plants, flowers, plush toys, fudge, ceramics, pillows, honey, accessories, shoes and SO MUCH MORE!

See all vendors, musicians, food trucks and link to author websites here.

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!

Not only is this a fun shopping opportunity, some of your favorite authors will be available in The White Barn to sell and sign their books. Check out their schedule below.
