Things To Do This Weekend in Charlotte June 14
Bechtler Modern Art Museum | June 15-16
Need a quick Father’s Day activity? The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art at the Levine Center for the Arts will be opening its doors for free to all dads! The center is located in uptown Charlotte and includes public art, plazas and retail. Family and individual tours are available at the museum. After looking around, you may want to pick up a gift for dad at the museum gift store, which features watches by Andy Warhol and Swiss-manufactured fountain pens. The museum is open from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Saturday and 12 p.m. – 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission for adults is $8 and children under the age of 10 get in free!
Brew Stash Bash | June 15
Here is another great idea for a Father’s Day weekend event! The 2nd annual Brew Stash Bash at the US National Whitewater Center features craft beer tastings and live music starting at 1 p.m. and ending with a performance by Railroad Earth at 8 p.m.
To sample the various beers you must purchase a $5 beer ticket. One ticket includes four 4 oz. beer samples. The beer featured comes from all over North Carolina and around the country. If you are still looking for more adventure aside from the beer and music, all normal pass activities will be available at the whitewater center.
Friday Live! | June 14
Stop by the NC Music Factory on Friday to listen to Yacht Rock Revue in the Fountain Plaza. This event is a part of a “Friday Live!” summer concert series the Factory is holding every Friday in June from 6 p.m. – 11 p.m. for just $5 advanced tickets. Admission to the concert also gives you admission into some of the surrounding NC Music Factory restaurants and bars.
