Went to Matthews Alive to volunteer. The music was great, the atmosphere was energetic. I just suggest they provide water for volunteers and there needs to be access to handicap parking. It was a very long walk to the festival from where we had to park. It was hot today! Otherwise, the park is nice. We enjoyed giving back.

Festival of India Charlotte 2023 event was held here and there was so much. There were multiple food and shopping stalls. There is a stage available for performances. Great place to visit with family and friends during any event
This review is for the Beach Fest concert held at Stump Town park. So I will attempt to separate the two entities in my review. The park is nice and a real asset for Matthews. Parking will be a challenge ... but we found a spot at the post office which was about a quarter mile away. The rest rooms were handy and clean. The concert. Our group really enjoyed The Entertainers. They were very congenial; had a good sound; and most importantly ... did not play load enough to make us uncomfortable. Now for the Tams. They were very proud of themselves, although I don't know why. Their volume level was so high that we became very uncomfortable were just about to leave when it started to rain. THANK YOU LORD. So ... we had to leave and get out of the rain. But the rain was better than the Tams. I will never attend another concert that includes the Tams. They are only interested in hearing themselves.
The city of Matthews has many festivals here at Stumptown Park. Last year I went to the Hispanic festival and today it was the festival of India. It's always a good time. Good food, music, culture, people, and a great environment.
Veterans memorial park right in the middle of downtown Matthews. They hold events all throughout the summer including food truck Fridays and concerts under the small stage. In the winter, a lighting display is setup for a nice walk around the park. It has a small play area for kids but mostly it's an open field with a sidewalk path around it.
