100% of Matthews Alive proceeds go to benefit Matthews-area non-profits.

Welcome to the Matthews Alive Festival

     The Matthews Alive Festival is a Labor Day weekend celebration dedicated to the support of local non-profit organizations. In 2015, Matthews Alive will be held September 4-7.

     Alongside our Board and key volunteers, community groups volunteer their time by working the festival areas. This dynamic produces a festival packed with family activities, great food, arts, and fantastic entertainment!

     Following the festival, 100% of the proceeds go back to these non-profit organizations, in order that they may provide services to enhance the quality of life in our area.

     To date, Matthews Alive, Inc. has contributed over $1,200,000 back into our local community!
