FESTIVAL: Festival of India 

Saturday, Sept. 4

Curry and Indian cuisine go hand in hand, but there's a lot more to the culture than spicy-filled aromas. During the two-day indoor/outdoor Festival of India — to take place at Knight Theater in Uptown Charlotte — folks can experience a taste of India (better than watching Julia Roberts in Eat Pray Love) through the many food choices available for purchase by tokens and be delightfully dazzled by the sights and sounds of traditional dances and music from the heart of that spirited faraway land. Arts and crafts, displays and visual arts exhibits, yoga demonstrations and more will offer an informative glimpse into the culture too. Oh, and for those of you who love henna (or are too scared to get a permanent tattoo), you can get your hand inked with the safe, natural (and temporary) juices of a flower. $5; free for children 9 years old and under. Sept. 4, 12 p.m.-7 p.m.; Sept. 5, 12 p.m.-6 p.m. Knight Theater, 430 S. Tryon St. www.indiafestival.net.

  • 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)
