Join the Charlotte Museum of History for our annual Backcountry Days Festival exploring the history and culture of the Carolina Backcountry’s early residents, including European colonists, enslaved people, and the Catawba Indian Nation, and the enduring traditions that impact our daily lives and artistic expression today.
Whether you are a family with kids, a retired history enthusiast, or a young professional, we have something for everyone! Bring a lawn chair or your picnic blanket and join us for an outdoor concert on the lawn of Mecklenburg County’s oldest surviving structure. Food will be available for purchase at the event.
We are very proud to partner with the Charlotte Folk Society on this event. CFS is a nonprofit dedicated to promoting the enjoyment and preservation of traditional and contemporary folk music, dance, crafts, and lore in the Piedmont area.
