Don't Miss the 3rd Annual Cheerwine Festival in Historic Salisbury, NC


When my parents decided to move our family to Salisbury, NC nearly 21 years ago, I scratched my head and shrugged my shoulders. I'd never heard of the city and wondered what was so special about it. I quickly learned that Salisbury is an historic NC city with so many amazing stories, beautiful historic homes, and sites, and is well-known for a myriad of awesome things. One of those things is Cheerwine, beloved soda of the Carolinas. It's a cherry flavored party for your taste buds, and once you've tried it, you'll never be able to find another soft drink that comes close to the sweet deliciousness of Cheerwine.


This Saturday (May 18th), the City of Salisbury will host the Third Annual Cheerwine Festival from 12 pm to 10 pm in downtown Salisbury, NC. Main Street is Salisbury will be filled with thousands of locals, and Cheerwine fans from across the Carolinas and beyond.



Come out and enjoy food and fun for all ages! Festival activities include:
