OTC expands its lineup once again by presenting back-to-back events in October!

October 12th brings the ever-popular monthly favorite 2nd Friday Street Festival followed by the launch of Urban Art Slam on October 13th
Celebrate the 2018 finale of our 5th season of 2nd Fridays as we cap off another tremendous year of local creativity and community entertainment! This month brings multi-genre soul and funk tunes from The Goodnight Brothers Band and the always-outstanding party band Shades of Brown-Charlotte. To entertain your taste buds as well as your ears, you will find your favorite local food trucks and breweries and a choice selection of other area creative vendors with arts, novelties, and family activities. Come out to Oak Street Mill to support and celebrate your community and meet your friends, family, and neighbors (and pets, too!) for the best monthly festival in Lake Norman!

On Saturday, October 13 Urban Art Slam descends upon Oak Street Mill and into the latest OTC creative flex-space, Brick Row. Another sensational innovative, collaborative event to tantalize all your senses and creative outlets – Urban Art Slam presents live performances of hip hop, reggae, break dancing, beat boys and girls, street art, and a graffiti wall. As usual to quench your thirst and hunger, you can support your regional food trucks and breweries throughout the night. Hosted by legendary emcee and break-dance impresario, Tron Robinson the night is sure to be the first of many booty-moving community events! And as always with every OTC event, all ages are welcome to attend and participate.
