Charlotte Street Vault
July 21st and 22nd

Thanks to everyone who made 2017 Charlotte Street Vault a tremendous success! Join us next summer to see if we can try to top this years. We encourage you to check out the results from 2017. The 2017 Charlotte Street Vault wouldn't have been as great without our sponsors & many volunteers. If you are interested in working with the street vault for the summer of 2018 we encourage you to reach out to us.
Great Place to be
The Broken Spoke is a stunning craft bar that works with their neighbor, Great Wagon Road Distillery, to provide an extensive list of spirits, beers, and wine. This is a unique area in Charlotte because The Broken Spoke is located in between two of Charlotte’s local breweries, Olde Mecklenburg Brewery and Sugar Creek Brewery.

Broken Spoke Map
The 2017 Charlotte Street Vault will take place outside of the Broken Spoke for the second year. The address is 227 Southside Drive, located in South Charlotte. This area provides a unique and fun atmosphere for both athletes as well as spectators. Due to the great bars and the local distillery found here this type of experience is something that can only be found in this area of Charlotte. We look forward to seeing everyone again this summer, and can’t wait to enjoy two days dedicated to pole vault!
