What’s Happening, Charlotte: Weekend events + Editor’s Picks (Sept. 28-30)

Your guide to events and entertainment. Get out this weekend and have some fun!

Home of Lockwood Legends Arts Initiative

Have you checked out our story on how the Lockwood Legends Arts Initiative is transforming the Lockwood neighborhood? It was once identified as one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the country.

As Charlotte continues to grow, gentrification remains a hot topic. White people are often blamed for gentrification. Are black people exempt from gentrifying black neighborhoods?

Qcitymetro will be hosting an intimate and interactive forum exploring the subject of black gentrification. There’s still a few spots open. In order to keep this event intimate, registration is required. RSVP here.

What: 
Black Gentrifiers Community Forum
*Refreshments will be served*

When: 
Tuesday, October 2, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Where:
Lockwood Legends Arts Initiative – 240 Sylvania Avenue, Charlotte, NC

Weekend Happenings

You don’t need to go to New York, L.A. or Milan for fashion week. The Queen City hosts its own show this week and has held it down for nearly a decade. Three industry pros shared their expertise with us. Charlotte fashion celeb and menswear business owner, LeMond Hart, is the featured designer for a fashion pop-up series. We spoke to the dapper one about what to expect at Friday’s event.

If fashion isn’t really your thing, we’ve got a full page of things to keep you entertained Friday though Sunday. Visit our special Weekend Events Page for the full listing.

This week’s Editor Picks:

If you’re hosting an event, be sure to submit it. It could end up as an Editor’s Pick.
