As has become customary with CIAA Week in Charlotte, this year taking place February 25 to March 3, there are hundreds of events and parties. And with them come dozens of celebrities. Most of the celebs are being paid to make appearances, host parties, or perform, and it’s your chance to act like paparazzi for a few days.

I’ve compiled the list below of celebrities who are scheduled to come to Charlotte that week, based on events being publicized. In addition to the many parties where the celebs will be featured, you can see several of them for free during the three-day CIAA Toyota Fan Experience at Charlotte Convention Center.

This list is overwhelmingly dominated by hip hop and R&B artists and DJs—new- and old-school—but there are also several actors and actresses, reality TV stars, music video vixens and models, and prominent media personalities on here as well (listed in alphabetical order). Plus, many of these celebs are scheduled to appear at multiple parties over the four-day weekend.
