The large-scale “CarolinaFest” party originally slated for Labor Day at the Charlotte Motor Speedway will move to Uptown Charlotte. That’s the latest news from the Charlotte in 2012 Host Committee, the group charged with raising funds for the 2012 Democratic National Convention and in charge of planning the Sept. 3 public festival.
Moving CarolinaFest to Uptown will help facilitate convention-goers and delegates who want to attend the event, but also have caucus or other convention-related events to attend in and around Center City.
The event will be held along the Tryon St. corridor. : :
