I love this list, and I'm so glad you created another thread! I'd like to include my link here as well, and mention again the symphony's summer pops concerts in South Park, the free weekly concerts at Blakeney, Stonecrest, Birkdale, and Rivergate as well as the concerts/festivals in Tega Cay and free outdoor movies in Ballantyne as well as other venues. Here are some links:

I (and my family) are very grateful! You put together a wonderful list and I didn't have to wade through a long thread to find it.

They're probably just mad we don't have something like Bonnaroo or Coachella here... (But neither do a zillion other cities our size.)

For anyone that likes their craft brews, the Oktoberfest is something you must go to. Carolina Brewmasters is sponsoring it and tickets sell out well before the event. They go on sale 7/1.
It is much more than an oompa band, brats and German beer!

Awesome list, Blue! Thanks so much for sharing it.

Coastalgirl - nice addition to that list - appreciate it.

I have said it before - when folks say they can't find great activities here in Charlotte, they just aren't looking.
