It's a tradition! Downtown Matthews will host the 21st annual Matthews Alive Festival over Labor Day Weekend.
South Trade Street closes from Friday through Monday so that carnival rides and a midway can be set up next to Stumptown Park. Over 160 booths featuring crafts are erected around the Matthews Community Center and Matthews Elementary School. Two outdoor stages provide the setting for musical acts and children's entertainment. When it gets too hot for another ride or another booth, you can cool off inside the Cultural Center with more entertainment and a quilt show. On Monday morning, you can participate in a 5K race. Monday is also the day for the Antique Car and Motorcycle Show in front of the Town Hall.
Saturday kicks off with the Matthews Alive Parade at 10:30am. This old-fashioned parade of bands and floats celebrates small town America.
Musical entertainment starts each afternoon around 1pm and extends into the evening until 9pm. Themes of this year's music are Beach and Buffet on Friday night, Rocking with Bostyx on Saturday night, and Country on Sunday night.
