Southeast Tourism Society Recognizes Three Lake Norman Festivities on Top 20 Events


Visit Lake Norman (VLN) nominated The Amazing Maize Maze, Carolina Renaissance Festival, and Christmas in Davidson to the Southeast Tourism Society (STS) Top 20 this year. Each event was selected as a Top 20 Event and will be published on two websites: Southeast Tourism Society and Travel Media Press Room. Travel industry experts select 20 events per month and STS publicizes them throughout the United States. The significance of the nominations is to recognize unique and diverse events, as well as provide well-deserved accolades for the dedicated event organizers and additional media exposure.

This year’s The Amazing Maize Maze, which will be held on weekends from September 7 to November 3, was announced as September’s Top 20 Best Festivals and Events in the Southeast. The seven-acre maze is one of the largest corn mazes in the Southeast region, although it serves as a small fraction of Rural Hill’s immense 265 acres. The maze serves as an excellent team-building exercise and is recommended for any group that wants to enjoy the delightful Lake Norman fall weather.

This year’s Carolina Renaissance Festival, which will be held on Saturdays and Sundays from October 5 to November 24, was elected as October’s Top 20 Best Festivals and Events in the Southeast. The Carolina Renaissance Festival emulates the 16th-century marketplace with non-stop entertainments, arts and crafts, games and rides, jousting knights on horseback, feating and much more. These festivals have allowed people to come together and appreciate the traditions of our diverse community for the past 25 years.

This year’s Christmas in Davidson which will be held on December 5 through December 7, was recognized on December’s Top 20 Best Festivals and Events in the Southeast. Christmas in Davidson is an annual event that takes guest on a journey through the holiday village with shopping, live music, fine foods and a Live Nativity scene. As the largest and most popular Davidson event, Christmas in Davidson is sure to put all in the holiday spirit.

Congratulations to the devoted event organizers that have worked vigorously to bring Lake Norman the best festivals and events each year. These unique, year-round events have provided attendees with everlasting memories and support for the travel industry which bring economic benefits to Lake Norman.
