Second Annual Taste of FreeMore!

Compare Foods

It's that time of year again! This Saturday, October 5th, we invite the greater Charlotte-area into our neighborhood for the second annual Taste of FreeMore for food, brews, live music and fun!

We're all very proud to call the Westside home, whether you're a part of FMW's large population of Charlotte natives or you set up shop, Taste of FreeMore will be an opportunity to revel in all of the elements that make FreeMoreWest so fun.

Brand new to the event is the first-ever Donut Eating Contest, sponsored by our newest FMW neighbor, Dunkin' Donuts which will open soon. We promise you won't want to miss this one. Plus, we've planned an interactive art station for families to enjoy, sponsored by LaCa Projects and ArtSi.

    Celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month

    Mosaic Village

    LaCa Projects opened in March 2013 as the region's first art gallery devoted exclusively to Latin American contemporary art. Located on Bryant Street in FreeMoreWest and with 4,000 square feet, the sprawling gallery is currently exhibiting Color & Form in Latin America, an exhibition featuring the works of five prolific Latin American artists, two of whom are Master artists. In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month, the exhibition has been extended through Friday, October 4. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 1-5 p.m. and by appointment.

    LaCa Projects offers visitors one complimentary glass of wine every Thursday from 4-5 p.m. And be sure to visit LaCa Projects from 5-7 p.m. during your monthly art gallery crawl (first Friday of every month). Stay tuned for details on the next phase of LaCa Projects, which will include artist studios and a cafe!
