All About Summer Events

The kids are out of school, lightning bugs are flying, and the neighborhood smells like backyard barbecues. This could only mean one thing – it is summertime in Charlotte! Here’s my list of five can’t-miss summer events: 

  • Dishes and Delights of Dilworth Tour is an intimate walking food tour featuring six culinary experiences, ranging from casual eateries to wine bars and restaurants. There will be hands-on demonstrations and blind taste tastings. The June date is sold out; two opportunities are available in July. Read more  
  • Wednesday Evenings at the Mint Museum (both locations) with free museum admission courtesy of Mint Museum Auxiliary and Publix Super Markets Charities. Start the evening with a one-hour yoga class (free to Mint members or $10 NC Yoga Bar pass) then explore the art exhibits and galleries.

  • Knight’s Games at BB&T Ballpark are the quintessential Charlotte summer event. Enjoy drink specials on Thirsty Thursdays, fireworks on Fridays and Saturdays, and special events like “Bark in the Park.” View the schedule here  
  • Taste of Charlotte and Race to Taste 5K is a 3-day street festival beginning June 7th in uptown Charlotte. There will be live music and entertainment, shopping, and unique dining experiences. Learn more:
