With the pandemic winding down, and fall weather ramping up, event organizers around the Queen City have kicking things into high gear.

This weekend, the Charlotte region will feature number of concerts, art events, and festivals.

Here are the top 10 that we know of happening over the next few days (as well as 4 extra honorable mentions):

#1 Cabarrus Fair

This year, the Cabarrus Fair has officially partnered with the Queen Charlotte Fair to hold a massive fall fair at the Route 29 Pavilion in Concord (5650 Sandusky Blvd., Concord, NC).

This year’s event will highlight local vendors for all aspects of the fair, including a petting zoo, pumpkin patch, carnival rides, live music, and all the fried fair food you can eat.

Gates will open Thursday, October 21 at 4pm. Ticket prices for this season’s event will be $8 online and $10 at the gate. Kids ages 6-12 will be $5 online and at the gate. Kids 5 and under are free.

#2 Michael Bublé

It’s hard to talk about love songs without talking about Michael Bublé, who has sold more than 60 million albums globally in that one genre alone. Bublé’s musical gift for igniting his audiences became apparent the moment he hit the stage, winning the British for FebruarColumbia Youth Talent Search at 17.
He’ll be performing live this coming Sunday night at the Spectrum Center in Uptown Charlotte staring at 8pm.

#3 Sunset Sessions at Anne Springs Close Greenway

Sunset Sessions returns to Fort Mill this weekend from 6pm-9pm. Enjoy our singer/songwriter format on Friday & Saturday nights at the Domtar Forest Porch as the sun dips over the horizon. The Gateway Canteen will serve their full menu along with a full line-up of craft beer and wine.

Mint Hill Madness has been scheduled for Fall 2021. Mint Hill Madness is a festival to celebrate the founding of the Town. Mint Hill Madness has something for everyone in the family; delicious food; great music ranging from country to rock; a fantastic family carnival; and of course, a spectacular firework show.
