What if it... rains?

Tawba Fest, like the US Post Office, will keep on rocking! We have no rain date, so please cross your fingers for a sunny Saturday.


Please bring your chairs and blankets to sit on, this will make it more comfortable to watch our live music. Bring your friends, family and even your dog! Bring your ID if you plan to drink beer and of course money for food and vendors!

How much does it cost to attend Tawba Fest?

Tawba Fest is FREE and open to the public! Keep in mind, some of our vendors only take cash so it's a good idea to come prepared with a little extra dough.

How much does event parking cost?

Event parking is FREE and available throughout the Riverwalk community in designated areas. As this is a residential community, please be courteous and refrain from parking alongside homes.

How much do event shuttles cost?

FREE! (Noticing a theme here?) Several air-conditioned passenger buses will be traveling in a circuit throughout the day from 5-9pm. Event staff will direct you to park in one of three designated areas — the Giordana Velodrome, the Novant Health BMX Track and the Athletic Fields — at which point you can walk or take a shuttle to the event area along the river.

How do I get to Tawba Fest?

Tawba Fest takes place in Riverwalk Carolinas, conveniently located off I-77.

Directions from North

Take Exit 85 off I-77 then turn left off of the ramp onto Steele Creek Road. Turn right at the stop light onto Cherry Road and proceed to the second Riverwalk entrance, near the Giordana Velodrome. Turn left at the light, into the entrance, and follow the direction of the event parking staff.

Directions from South

Take Exit 82A off I-77 then turn right onto Cherry Road. Proceed to the Riverwalk entrance, near the Giordana Velodrome and follow the direction of the event parking staff.


While the event takes place outdoors, along an uneven grassy area, we've made every effort to make Tawba Fest as easy to navigate by stroller or wheel chair as possible. Handicap accessible parking is located along the event site so be sure to ask an event staff parking attendant to direct you to those spaces upon arrival.

Can I bring a cooler?

Coolers are not allowed. We encourage you to support our Tawba Fest sponsors and vendors by enjoying plenty of amazing food and drink for purchase at the event.

Do remember to bring along blankets, chairs, etc that you may find helpful to enjoy the festivities.

Can I bring my dog?

Yes! As long as they are accompanied by a responsible human and kept on a leash at all times, dogs are welcome at Tawba Fest.

Please be kind and pick up after your pet — trash bags will be provided throughout the event area.

HOW much money should i plan to bring along?

Well, that's up to you really. Craft beer will be for sale by the glass and our food vendors will be providing tasty treats such as BBQ, sandwiches and the like for a few dollars a pop. 

If you're planning to enjoy some craft brews, be sure to bring a valid driver's license or photo ID.
