Hummingbirds are one of many kinds of birds that can be found in North Carolina. Celebrate them at the Reedy Creek Nature Center and Preserve with demonstrations, talks, kids' activities, music, and more.
CHARLOTTE MUSIC FESTIVAL
Dozens of Charlotte bands and performers fly under the radar, but the Charlotte Music Festival at Tremont Music Hall gives you the opportunity to see them in one place. For three days (Friday-Sunday), hear bands like Isolate the Unknown and Slow Motion Riot, playing stacked shows that start early and end late.
