Known as one of Charlotte’s most beloved fundraisers, the Taste of the New South event is hosted annually by the Levine Museum of the New South and moves to The Filmore this year with great eats and inspiration. Proceeds support the Museum’s mission of teaching, honoring and promoting our city’s history in order to strengthen the local community. Here are the key takeaways you need to know:

When and where

Levine’s signature event is set for March 6 at 6 p.m., with a VIP reception at 5:30 p.m. Presented by PNC, Taste of the New South has expanded this year to accommodate its growing popularity and will take place at The Fillmore, the renowned music hall at the North Carolina Music Factory in Charlotte.

What to expect

Catered by Best Impressions Caterers, Taste of the New South promises
scrumptious Southern eats and creative drinks. But this year’s event is about more than just food. Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, Emmy-nominated filmmaker and renowned speaker Jose Antonio Vargas will headline the fundraiser, discussing immigration and excerpts from his new book, Dear America: Notes of an Undocumented Citizen. A stalwart immigration and diversity advocate, Mr. Vargas dispels common misconceptions about
immigration and describes the realities of “life without papers.”

Taste of the New South attracts Charlotteans from across the city. In keeping
with Levine Museum’s mission, guests can expect a diverse crowd coming together as one community to celebrate each other, our history and the work the Museum is doing.
