Fall Festivals at Lake Norman

Fall Festivals at Lake Norman are on the calendar.  Beginning in late September, the Lake Norman area starts gearing up for fall and the holidays.

One of the most popular fall festivals is The Carolina Renaissance Festival.  This festival is every Saturday and Sunday from October 4th – November 23rd in Huntersville.  The Renaissance Festival is based on medieval themes and offers rides, interactive circus, pubs, arts and crafts, games of skill, and castles.  The festival is located off Poplar Tent Road in Huntersville.

This weekend LaketoberFest will take place at Bailey Road Park in Cornelius.  The event runs from 4:00-9:00 pm on Saturday, October 18th.  LaketoberFest will feature local bands, NC breweries’ beer, food trucks, and a kids zone.  Admission is free and the event proceeds will benefit Lake Norman Wildlife Conservationists.

If bands, beers, and food trucks aren’t your area of interest, the Stumptown Tractor Show is also happening this weekend at Rural Hill off Neck Road.  The event is free and family-friendly!

The annual Rural Hill Sheepdog Trials and Dog Festival is November 8th-9th at Rural Hill off Neck Road.  This festival hosts agility trials, dock diving, and dog sports demonstrations (herding, etc).  If you have an interest in agility or dock-diving, this is a great event to attend.

In a upcoming post, we will highlight all of the Halloween celebrations in the Lake Norman area.  These range from trunk or treats, Halloween marches, ghost walks, and the history of All Hallow’s Eve.
