Welcome to the East Side!
CharlotteEAST is a nonprofit advocacy board dedicated to supporting the people and places that make East Charlotte great. Our mission is to bring together businesses, neighborhoods, non-profits, and civic organizations to develop and strengthen economic and social capital in the East Charlotte communities. CharlotteEAST serves as an advocate for the area’s needs and helps to market the diversity and unique assets that make East Charlotte a vibrant place to live, work, and play.
Rich in history and spirit, East Charlotte is a warm Southern home to a global community. With more than 160,000 residents, our collective of Near East, Middle East, and Far East neighborhoods is more populous than Wilmington, Asheville, or Gastonia.
We're proud of our history, excited for our future, and glad that you've come to visit. Welcome - let us show you around the East Side, where Charlotte begins!
