What’s Happening This Weekend With Moira Quinn
CHARLOTTE, NC — Moira Quinn with Charlotte Center City Partners has a rundown of the top events in November.
Eye on Tryon
Tryon & E.7th Streets
An 80-foot-tall Ferris wheel in the heart of Center City. This is the same Ferris wheel that people know from some of the world’s greatest music festivals like Bonnaroo. Come join us at the corner of North Tryon and East 7th Streets between Friday and November 10th. Tickets to ride are $6 for adults and $3 for kids.
Nebel’s Alley Night Market
Friday, Nov. 2
Design District, South End
Nebel’s Alley Night Market, an intimate and indulgent evening of shopping will be your new favorite night out in Historic South End. The market will feature a range of products from 30 pop-up vendors including handmade leather products, vintage accessories, T-shirts, home décor and local kombucha. Attendees can grab dinner from Superica or Pike’s Soda Shop and enjoy an ice cream cone from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams while wandering through the market. Black and white movies projected on the brick walls of the alleys and live jazz and a caricaturist will complete the vibe.
Saturday, Nov. 3
EpicFest is an extraordinary, free literary festival that brings children, teens and families together with authors, illustrators and the Library. This year’s festival will feature appearances by award-winning authors and illustrators, activities that encourage a love of reading and learning, a musical performance by Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band, and a YA author panel for teens and all fans of young adult literature.
