Statement Regarding COVID-19

The safety and health of Cheerwine Festival attendees, staff, vendors and volunteers is our number one priority. We're continuing to closely monitor developments and follow recommendations from the CDC, federal, state and local agencies. At this time, we are still planning to move forward with Cheerwine Festival on May 16, 2020. We will continue to post updates if plans change.


Locals and fans of Cheerwine alike love the Cheerwine Festival! Since 2017, the entire downtown of Salisbury, NC has transformed into a celebration of Cheerwine each May. At the festival, you can stroll through our historic downtown while shopping among local craft and artisan stalls. Enjoy food from "Carolina Originals", plus a beer garden for adults. There will be quality entertainment all day long with a kid's area and live bands!
