We’ve also rounded up some art events, cultural activities and spots you can try. Without further ado, here’s 21 fantastic things to do in Charlotte this March.
The popular Candlelight series back in Denver, and they’re doing some really amazing tributes to some of culture’s most iconic musicians.

Supperland debuted in 2021 as a beautiful, modern take on potluck dinners and American classics. Set inside a renovated Midcentury Church and known for its amazing cocktails and elevated dinners.
