    Backcountry Days & Ice Cream Social

    The Charlotte Folk Society will gather to enjoy ice cream, jamming, and socializing on Saturday, August 26th, Noon to 4:00 PM, as part of Backcountry Days & Ice Cream Social at the Charlotte Museum of History, 3500 Shamrock Drive, Charlotte.  This family event is free and open to the public.  PLEASE NOTE: RAIN CANCELS.

    We are pleased to again partner with Charlotte Museum of History and the Storytellers Guild of Charlotte and look forward to returning to the grounds of the Hezekiah Alexander Homesite, the perfect setting for families to enjoy an old-fashioned summer afternoon of storytelling, open jam sessions, singing, and, of course, ice cream – as long as it lasts! Bring an acoustic instrument and join an old-time, bluegrass, or Celtic music jam session.  Visit the Appalachian Dulcimer Club and take one of their instruments for a test drive.  Take time to explore the activities of 18th century daily living in this region of North Carolina then known as the Backcountry.  Visitors will be able to see demonstrations of traditional crafts and cooking, along with children’s crafts.  Admission is free.  This is one of our most popular annual events and we look forward to coming together again to share our music, stories, and ice cream with our visitors.
