Tuck Fest

Map5000 Whitewater Center Pkwy.,
Charlotte, NC
  • Arts & Culture


There’s no better place to see an outdoor concert than the Whitewater Center, there’s no better season to sit outside in North Carolina than spring, and there’s no better price than free. Tuck Fest, held each April against the already musical backdrop of rushing waters and busy zip lines, started in 2013 with 14,000 attendees. Last year, 32,000 came over four days. Some of the most talented artists in modern music have performed, including Trombone Shorty, Jason Isbell, and St. Paul & The Broken Bones.
