The 2023 Cheerwine Festival Returns To Salisbury North Carolina This Weekend
The 2023 Cheerwine Festival returns Saturday, May 20, from noon to 10 p.m. for a day of fun celebrating the South’s favorite cherry soda. This year’s festival features entertainment headlined by the Band Neon Trees, Cheerwine-inspired food and beverages, arts & crafts, two beer gardens, kids’ activities, and a Cheerwine history exhibit at the Rowan Museum. The festival originated in 2017 as a way to celebrate Cheerwine’s 100th anniversary and has become a yearly community staple since then.
It’s free to attend as well as all of the music, kids’ activities, as well as the history exhibit. A portion of all drink sales (purchased at the Cheerwine tents) will go to benefit Rowan Helping Ministries. Food will be available from 40 vendors from across the Carolinas. Make sure to try to Cheerwine BBQ, Cheerwine funnel cakes, Cheerwine tacos, and more! And if you’re 21 you’ll want to pay a visit to the Beer Garden which features 10 breweries and Cheerwine beer. All in all it’s shaping up to be a wonderful weekend of family fun and of course delicious Cheerwine!

You’ve got arts and crafts vendors, lots and lots of food, beer and wine, rides and other activities for kids, 5Ks, and more.
Events are spread all throughout the state so you’re sure to find one that’s near you. Or if you want an excuse to travel (do you ever really need one?) plan a trip! North Carolina has so much to offer and many of these small towns might be overlooked by you without the draw of these events. Festivals take place throughout the year.
