A crowd of people having a good time on a sunny day at an outdoor festival.

Markets at 11 is set to return this spring to Ballantyne. The open-air market series will take place on April 9, May 14, and June 11 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The events are in Ballantyne’s Backyard, a community park located on the former golf course in Ballantyne.

Markets at 11 features over 70 small business vendors, local artisans, outdoor yoga, live music, food trucks, pop-up breweries, and other family-friendly activities. If you are attending plan to bring blankets, chairs, games to enjoy the day at the park. Dogs are welcome as well. In 2021, the series drew over 70,000 attendees and supported more than 400 local small businesses.

“After last year’s success, we are excited to bring back Markets at 11 and host Charlotte’s local businesses, musicians, artists and eateries,” said Hailey Rorie, director of community relations for Northwood Office. “This event series is one of many taking place in Ballantyne’s Backyard this year, and we look forward to creating unique and memorable experiences for our community to engage in.”
