The Race City Festival is a Celebration of Lake Norman Area Arts and Culture and is held along Main and Broad Streets in Downtown Mooresville.  The festival is hosted by the Mooresville-South Iredell Chamber of Commerce each year.  Local arts and crafts of the Mooresville community, live music, international food, beer and wine garden, and a children’s area with rides and activities are all what make the festival such a hit!


  • The festival brings more than 10,000 individuals out each year.
  •  The festival happens, rain or shine.
  • There are two stages used for live entertainment.


The festival is typically held on the third Saturday of May.  It begins at 9am and runs until 5pm.  Visitors are encouraged to come and stay as long as they like!  Whether you are interested in making a day of it, or are simply looking to spend a few hours pa-rousing the booths, come and join the fun.
