Our Festival was chosen as THE North Carolina summer festival by MSN. Only one festival per state was chosen for their summer listing.
We always knew we had a treasure in the NC Department of the American Legion 7th Inning Stretch Festival, now the rest of the country knows. Text from the listing: North Carolina: 7th-Inning Stretch Festival
Country superstar Martina McBride headlines this year’s 7th-Inning Stretch Festival, a baseball-themed event hosted by the American Legion World Series. Among the free events scheduled for Aug. 10 in Shelby are the Little Miss American Legion Beauty Pageant, a 5K, and, of course, a performance by Martina McBride. There are also contests, prizes, carnival food, a kids zone, and plenty more.
