Local Festival Unites Charlotte Neighbors
Charlotte, NC (PRWE August 20, 2012
The Common Ground Music and Arts Festival is Saturday, August 25, 2012
in the Plaza Midwood neighborhood and will feature some of Charlotte’s
best musicians and artists.
Located on Thomas Avenue, The Common Ground Music and Arts Festival
focuses on showcasing area musicians, artists, craftsmen and artisans.
The street festival hopes to unite Charlotte neighborhoods for a weekend
of fun and entertainment for all ages.
“The idea of Common Ground stemmed from the desire to bring the same
small town festival experience I had from my childhood to the City of
Charlotte,” said event coordinator Matt Ferguson, “Plaza Midwood is a
unique and diverse area surrounded by some of Charlotte’s oldest and
most beautiful neighborhoods. With so many neighborhoods within walking
distance, I couldn’t think of a better place to host the event.”
Admission is free and the band line up includes local musicians like
The Troublesome Youngs, Actual Proof, The New Familiars, Hayden Lee,
Heywire, Moonshine Racers and Billy Jones and the Pocket. Street vendors
will be filled with area craftsmen and artisans and the official after
party will be hosted by Kickstand Burgers and Bar.
