The Finale

3773 Meeting Street Road

3773 Meeting Street Road

With one last delectable event to close out the festival, The Finale is a celebration of the South’s culinary renaissance. Having spent five days appreciating this collective of artists, culinary visionaries, artisans, bartenders, brewers, purveyors, musicians and so many more we invite you to reflect and indulge with us. Enjoy the sips + bites from a round-up of the South’s best chefs + bev pros and sounds by Stop Light Observations! Don’t miss the last event of the festival with all those who helped make the 2024 festival possible.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Finale! After yesterday’s wet weather we anticipate the grounds to be more favorable to wearing closed toed shoes/rain boots. We hope to see you there dancing (in a puddle or two)!
