For more than 30 years, the 600 Festival Association has been commemorating the May races at Charlotte Motor Speedway with spectacular family-oriented events that personify the tremendous growth of motor sports.
Celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2014, the nonprofit association is going back to its roots by celebrating and promoting motor sports throughout the Charlotte region. The 600 Festival will be adding three new events to its roster this year including Movies on the Campus in conjunction with the Village Jiggy Jam in Kannapolis, a hauler parade in conjunction with Union Street Live in downtown Concord and the “Little 600” race at the GoPro Motorplex in Mooresville. In addition, it will continue to produce its spotlight event, Coca-Cola Speed Street presented by Chevrolet, which will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year. The best part? All four events are free!
Celebrating its 20th year, Coca-Cola Speed Street presented by Chevrolet transforms the streets of Uptown Charlotte into one of the largest consumer events in the Southeast. With live musical entertainment, appearances by top NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers and celebrities, dynamic exhibits for all ages and an amazing assembly of NASCAR show cars and simulators, Coca-Cola Speed Street presented by Chevrolet is an event attended by more than 400,000 attendees annually.
This multiday, free consumer event will be taking place May 22-24, 2014. The festival is open from noon to 11 p.m. each day.
