In 2000, Mecklenburg County's Public Service & Information Department created "MeckFest" to help celebrate National County Government Week. MeckFest was held on the grounds of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center in downtown Charlotte.

In 2004, Mecklenburg County began partnering with Eastland Mall to take the services to the people with an event we call "Mecklenburg at the Mall." Participating County departments exhibit their services inside the mall, providing information about how tax dollars are spent, how to keep Mecklenburg County clean and safe, and how to take advantage of the many services the County offers. Mecklenburg at the Mall is underwritten by Duke Power.
