I had a supporter of CLTParty recently ask why we call the events and parties that go down during CIAA Weekend in Charlotte “the biggest party week of the year”. The answer was simple – because it is. Since 2012, the sheer volume of events going on throughout the city has increased at least twenty percent every year. The unofficial count of events that were scheduled between Monday, February 23rd through Sunday, March 1st was 186, and 2016 will likely see that number topple 200.
No other annual week or weekend, from All Star to Superbowl, Essence to Bike Week, can compare. With all those options, trying to decide where to go can be nerve wrecking. After all, no matter if you wanted to see Doug E Fresh or Yo Gotti, you had plenty of chances to see either last weekend. Vote in today’s poll what was the MOST IMPORTANT reason for picking the parties you went to below.
