DATE: August 14th 9AM-4PM.
Hilton at CharlotteExecutivePark
5624 Westpark Dr.
Charlotte Hotels - Hilton Charlotte Executive Park Hotel, NC - North Carolina
Rooms are only $89/night. Just mention CanFEST.
We have a totally different room which is about triple the space as compared to last year. In addition we also have a second room for the DIY crowd or anyone who prefers to spend some time in a more quiet and intimate setting: the best of both worlds. So bring your stuff and set up wherever you prefer. There is no charge for table space or admission. It's FREE for all who attend.
In the meantime, please continue to list below those who plan to attend and what equipment you will be bringing and I'll keep an organized list updated. We also have several manufacturers and dealers already committed to attend to help make the event more interesting and fun.
For visitors there is a lot to enjoy in the Charlotte area:
