Here are some frequently asked questions to help you get the most out of your 'Tawba Walk experience.


Now in its 11th year, the 'Tawba Walk Arts & Music Festival has grown into one of the area's largest and most action-packed community festivals.

It is held twice per year on the last Saturdays in April and September, with the next scheduled event on Saturday, April 27th from 2-8 pm. 

'Tawba Walk festivities include:

 2 stages of Live Bands 
Over 100 local artists, craftsmen & vendors 
Local Craft Breweries 
Multiple Food Truck Courts 
2 Epic Kid Zones
Street Art & Live Demonstrations 
Games, Give-a-ways, and much more! 

Parking for the 'Tawba Walk is available at the following locations:  Cornelius Elementary, Cornelius Library, Town-owned lot in front of Food Lion and anywhere along Town Center where there aren't signs prohibiting parking (i.e. Catawba Ave and various off-shoots). Parking is NOT permitted at Food Lion & Walgreens to allow for customer access. 


Where can I park?

Actually, YES! We have a FREE shuttle bus that travels between the parking lots at First Baptist Church, American Legion, and then drops off and picks up in front of Cornelius Town Hall. The shuttle bus route takes approximately 15 minutes to complete and rotates ONLY between those 3 locations (see attached map). 



Beverage tickets are available at both OAK STREET MILL and CORNELIUS TOWN HALL at the designated “BEER TICKET” booths. Please have your ID ready in order to receive a wrist band and you may then purchase beverage tickets to be redeemed at any of the participating breweries/cideries on either side.


Where can I purchase a beverage tickets?

Beverages must stay on their respective sides of Catawba Ave. (Oak Street Mill & Cornelius Town Hall). Attendees are NOT permitted to cross the road with open containers and must dispose of their beverage in the designated trash bins before crossing.


Where can I take my adult beverage?

Restrooms can be located through the rear entrance of Cornelius Town Hall as well as inside Oak Street Mill through the venues Brick Row, Seven Oaks or Old Town Event Center.


Where are restrooms located?

There are 2 EPIC Kid Zones located at both Oak Street Mill and Cornelius Town Hall along with other fun family-friendly activities throughout the event.


Where are the Kid Zones?

Great question! Currently, the Lake Norman Social District stretches from the Cain Center down Catawba Avenue, past Old Town Public House, and ends at The Coffeeshop (formerly Thigs Cocktail Bar). You may enjoy your beverage walking between  those 3 locations ONLY. Your beverage may NOT cross into the areas of Oak Street Mill or Cornelius Town Hall and must be discarded in the designated trash bins before entering.


How does the Lake Norman Social District work?

Absolutely! We love our furry friends and welcome you to bring your well-behaved pups to the festivities. Please just make sure they stay on a leash at all times.
