The Matthews Alive Festival is a Labor Day weekend celebration dedicated to the support of local non-profit organizations. Now we’re offering a new way for you to support our community…
We Love Pets
We all love our four legged friends, but we kindly ask that you leave them safely at home during the Matthews Alive festivities. The city of Matthews, NC has an ordinance against allowing pets within the event area. Note: Service animals are always welcome.

Something for all ages. Great variety of food and craft vendors . Our first time at this festival but not our last! See you next year!
We have been going for several years and enjoy the music and various booths! 5 stars!
Family friendly for all ages, rides & games. You always see something new & unique around every turn. Great variety of music thru out the event. So many choices in food, treats & sweets. Artisans everywhere. The Quilters Guild using fabric as though it was a paintbrush.
