The Charlotte in 2012 Host Committee released a list of vendors Tuesday for both its Labor Day Street party, CarolinaFest, and throughout the week during the Democratic National Convention.
Food vendors include Bollywood Bites Indian cuisine, E2 - Emerils Eatery and Naders Bistro of Virginia, which serves gyros, cheese steaks and others. Food vendors who have gotten permits to work uptown all week include Brazz Carvery, Dave & Frans Southern Cafe, Rocky River Sandwich Co., and two barbecue makers, Saucemans and Dan the Pig Man.
Other vendors for both Monday and the rest of the week include scarf makers, artists and Park Road Books.
Joshua Field, the media spokesman, said there were vendors on a waiting list who could be added if more spots open up, although he doesnt have more than a few additions.
Field also confirmed that no beer or alcohol sales will be allowed during Carolina Fest, which is designed to be a family-friendly event. However, nearby restaurants and bars may be open for business that day. Kathleen Purvis
