OTC partners with Bella Love to throw some of the biggest, most attended street festivals in the area. Below are a few of our most popular events.

‘Tawba Walk

Twice a year we invite the entire community out to join us and do the ‘Tawba Walk! Live music, food trucks, kids zones, artists and vendors and so much more await each time. This is our staple event, and is hugely popular in Old Town Cornelius. If you do one thing this year, make sure it’s a ‘Tawba Walk!

You don’t have to wait for the big shebang to come on out and have a good time with us! The 2nd Friday Street Festival happens every second Friday of the ever month from May through October. We have food trucks, entertainment, artists, local vendors, and more!
