Full Community Partnership

Aldersgate plays an active role in our neighborhoods and community. We host the International Sandwich Festival, and many local organizations meet on our campus. We cheer on the local high school basketball team and play host to dozens of non-profit organizations that meet on our campus. We are even thinking of building a new venue for outdoor theatrical events and concerts for residents and the community to enjoy.

Holiday Light Tour - A Non-profit Life Plan Community

Inaugurated in December 2020, our annual Festival of Lights shares a magical winter wonderland with the greater Charlotte community, while keeping visitors warm and safe in their own cars. In 2020, this driving tour attracted tens of local sponsors, allowing us to deck our 231-acre community in sparking lights, Christmas trees and even a bit of (fake) snow! Hundreds of attendees joined us for some socially distanced holiday cheer.
