Kannapolis Wine Festival runs with Sept. 26 Kaleidoscope festival

KANNAPOLIS — Tickets for the inaugural Kannapolis Wine Festival are now on sale, but you better hurry because there are only about 300 tickets for sale.


The Kannapolis Wine Festival will be held from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Old Cabarrus Bank Building at 201 West Ave., Kannapolis. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. The festival is being organized by the volunteer organization, Downtown Kannapolis Inc. (DKI).
Brenda Drye, with DKI, said they are planning to have at least six wineries and they have confirmed three including Salisbury’s Cauble Creek Vineyard; Concord’s  Cougar Run Winery; and Kannapolis’ own Douglas Vineyards.
The wine festival will run in conjunction with the Sept. 26 Kaleidoscope Cultural Arts Festival, which is a street festival organized by Kannapolis Arts, a division of DKI.
The street festival runs along West Avenue and patrons from the wine festival will have an armband that lets them leave the bank building to participate in the arts festival and then go back for more wine. It is free to attend the street festival.
Kaleidoscope Cultural Arts Festival runs from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 26 and will have food trucks available thanks to Greg Helmandollar, also known as MasterBacon, who organizes the Cabarrus County Food Truck Friday series.
