Summertime Favorites

Don't miss out on our family-friendly summer festivities!

Take a trip to Lake Norman to experience the iconic summers and a dip in the lake to cool down. When you're not on the lake, the whole family can enjoy several popular events in Cornelius, Davidson, and Huntersville.

Summer warms up in April with events like the Scottish Festival & Loch Norman Highland Games. This event could spark an interest in your heritage while having a Scotch egg and watching the athletic games at Historic Rural Hill. In May, catch the dragon boat race at the Asian Festival & Dragon Boat Race, celebrating Asian cultures, diversity, ethnicity, roots, and history.  Enjoy retail vendors, live music, dance performances, and more. Come Independence Day, we have many 4th of July events. Start your day at Birkdale Village's block party and end it with fireworks lighting up the night sky over the water.

Other seasonal events that heat up every summer are Concerts on the Green, Outdoor Cinema Series in the park and numerous beer and art festivals. Nothing says ‘summer’ like time spent enjoying events at the lakeside.
