News flash: Mother's Day is THIS weekend. Hopefully, you've stocked up on flowers and bath bombs for Mom and the amazing women in your life, but on the chance that Sunday slipped your mind, we have some suggestions for unique and art-filled gifts.


SHOUT! About How Much You Love Mom

This is the last weekend of Charlotte SHOUT!, a massive art festival taking place all around Uptown. Take a stroll down North Tryon to experience various art installations, listen to some music and enjoy local food trucks. Don't miss the bunnies on the Green or Tall Tales and L'homme Cirque in First Ward Park for even more festival fun. And absolutely head over to the Government Center to see Blue Lapis Light perform a piece developed especially for Charlotte as they dance 15 stories up. Learn more.


Enjoy an Evening with Her Favorite Heartthrob

Grab Mom a ticket to see Rob Lowe present Stories I Only Tell My Friends on June 22. The Brat Pack star (who seemingly doesn't age) will recount his Hollywood experiences, including all of your favorite film and TV projects. Want to earn favorite child status? Upgrade her to a Meet & Greet ticket! Learn more.

Celebrate Being Together in Charlotte

If your mama is local, let her laugh at Charlotte shenanigans from the past year. Charlotte Squawks returns for their Quackceañera May 30-June 23. Think Saturday Night Live meets the Queen City; this show covers politics, art, Charlotte culture and much more. Learn more.


Give the Gift of a Gospel Legend

Kirk Franklin brings his Long Live Love tour to Charlotte on July 24 for an evening of music. His now-famous blend of gospel and hip hop earned him multiple Grammys and an undeniable place as a contemporary musical mainstay. Learn more.


Plan Mom's Night Out

The Queen of Tupperware parties returns to the Queen City! Snag a few tickets for Mom to see Dixie's Tupperware Party -- it's sure to leave her hooting and hollering with her girlfriends (and she'll even have the chance to leave with some Tupperware of her own)! Learn more.
