Come enjoy some time on the “front porch of Lake Norman” at the 4th Annual Troutman Chair Company Front Porch Fest on Saturday, May 12, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Troutman Business Council, in conjunction with the Town of Troutman and the Statesville Chamber of Commerce, helps organize this event.

The town closes down a section of Wagner Street and Highway 21 to set up for a variety of food trucks, craft vendors, bands, petting zoo, and a Kid’s Zone for this community celebration. Beer and wine will also be available this year for adult festival attendees.

Other sponsors include Royal Properties, Piedmont Animal Rescue, Findlay Chiropractic, McDonald’s, Sovereign Investment Group, State Farm, Piedmont Healthcare, Subway, and Zootastic.


Sponsorships are available for the main stage, Kids Zone, and name/logo sponsors on marketing materials for the event and to display goods or wares in a 10-by-10 tent.


Organizers are looking for a variety of handmade arts and crafts and require pictures of the goods with the vendor application. No yard sale/flea market type items are allowed.

Businesses are welcome to set up booths to hand out promotional items but cannot compete with food vendors.
