Welcome to the official Carolina Catfish Festival website. We are pleased to announce that the Carolina Catfish festival will last for 2 days. Starting August 7th and ending August 8th. That's 2 nights of family fun and entertainment. The Carolina Catfish Festival will be held at Eastridge Mall in Gastonia NC and each day will have something different and fun for the whole family. For 2020, the Carolina Catfish Festival will be part of the All American Fair.
2 nights of Catfish races, fish frys, crafters, artisans, large variety of food, rides, games, beer and wine garden, some amazing bands, Dub Day cruise in, food eating contests and more... With so much going on we can't possibly list everything here. We are looking forward to catfish races and cooler weather and there is no better way to enjoy it than with our friends and neighbors. As always our events are free to attend along with numerous free activities offered on each day. So get those lawn chairs out and we will see you at the Carolina Catfish Festival!
