Easter 2021 will still be a scaled back affair. There are more socially distanced events than in 2020, because we’ve learned how to do that safely. But it won’t be the free-for-all of pre-2020 Easters. Read on to see a list of the creative ways that Charlotte area businesses and organizations are adapting and offering safer celebrations.
We are adding events as they’re added. We are also including some ideas for at-home activities, like crafts, food and drink, and Easter ecards. Scroll down for a list of Easter events in the Charlotte area!
