Go green during the Charlotte Irish Summer Festival. In its 4th year, the fest offers an alternative to the long wait for St. Patrick's Day festivities. Get a feel for Ireland through the many bands (Ceol na Gael, Clanndarragh, Fighting 86's, McLean Avenue, Trad at Heart, Vertigo) and dance groups (Rince na h'Eireann School of Irish Dance and Walsh Kelley School of Irish Dancing) performing throughout the day/night. And don't forget to get your taste for Ireland by slugging down a pint. Register for free tickets at www.charlotte.creativeloafing.com/funandfreestuff/. 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Held at the corner of 3rd Street and Tryon Street.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
