The 2018 season is jam packed with exciting events for the whole family. When you’re looking for things to do in Charlotte, you can find it at Carowinds. Starting in March through December, there’s always something special happening on the Carolina state line.
We’re pleased to announce our all-new, signature event - the Great Carolina Fest. From June 9-24, this celebration will bring together all the great reasons why we love living in the Carolinas. With the perfect mixture of culture and fun, it promises to be a new tradition for hometown fun. Enjoy authentic eats and drinks from different Carolina regions – from the mountains of the north to the Lowcountry of the south. Get those toes tapping with lively entertainment from local bands. Experience the wide variety of rich cultures in the Carolinas with special activities, handmade arts and crafts and even some down-home fun for the little ones. Great Carolina Fest is where families can make lifelong memories – Carolina style.
Our fun doesn’t stop once summer is over. SCarowinds and The Great Pumpkin Fest dish out the fall festivities that will make you shriek, and WinterFest, our all-new holiday event, will immerse you in the season’s spirit. Carowinds is the best place to celebrate, regardless the time of year!
From music festivals to seasonal celebrations, our special events calendar dishes out unique experiences and family activities all year. Get your 2018 Gold Season Pass today to make sure you don’t miss out on the fun!
