Join us on July 21st and 22nd for our second annual Charlotte Street Vault! Last year was a huge success and we encourage you to check out the results from 2016. A big thanks to our sponsors! If you are interested in working with the street vault for the summer of 2017 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 they second years. The address is 227 Southside Drive, in South Charlotte. This is a unique and fun atmosphere for both athletes as well as spectators. Because of these great bars and the local distillery this 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!
