Uptown Crawl has become one of the hottest events in Charlotte. Once a month get free admission to a number of Uptown museums and galleries and a free ride between them. There’s more than that going on too. Read on.
Go on the Uptown Crawl Thursday, March 23rd, 2017, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., and get free admission to Uptown museums and art galleries. Start at any one of them and plan your route. You can walk between the venues or travel by free trolley.
This month the crawl will also include street entertainers at the seven trolley stops and near participating locations, including musicians, jugglers, caricature artists, stilt walkers, mimes, magicians and more—entertainers are courtesy of Illusions and Confusions.
