CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Feb. 28, 2017) – On Tuesday, executives of the 600 Festival Association unveiled several new changes for the 2017 series of events that support the May races at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Most notably, Circle K Speed Street presented by Coca-Cola’s three nights of music will take place in Romare Bearden Park located at 300 South Church Street in Charlotte. The new location will allow ticketed customers the comforts of a lawn seat to enjoy the national headliners who will be announced soon. A second music stage, the Mello Yello stage, will be located on Tryon Street at Stonewall Street.
In addition, Circle K Speed Street presented by Coca-Cola will be sporting a new look for 2017 with a refreshed logo for the 23rd annual event. The 600 Festival also has rolled out a new website for 2017 that is more user-friendly and informative.
“Since we wrapped up in May, the team has been working diligently on improvements for the 2017 600 Festival events,” said Jacqueline Gafrarar, executive director of the 600 Festival Association. “The new concert location, new logo and new website are just a few of the exciting updates we have for our event attendees.”
This year, event goers can enjoy the May 5 Movies on the Campus event in conjunction with Jiggy with the Piggy in Kannapolis; Haulers on Union in Concord on May 18; the Little 600 at GoPro Motorplex in Mooresville May 23; the PNC Speed Street 5K on May 25 in Charlotte; and Circle K Speed Street presented by Coca-Cola May 25-27.
