Camden Commons, presented by Lowe's

Enjoy great vibes, good tunes, and local eats in South End.

Camden Commons isn’t your typical neighborhood hang out. We are shutting down the streets of South End for three days this season to add shopping, relaxation, and good vibes to your Sunday Funday routine. Come spend your day  checking out the local food scene, playing nostalgic games, shopping local, and discovering community around every corner. This family-friendly event is free and open to all.

Camden Commons is happening on:

  • Sunday, May 19 - 11:00am - 5:00pm
  • Sunday, June 16 - 11:00am - 5:00pm
  • Sunday, June 30 - 11:00am - 5:00pm 

Street closure - Camden Road will be closed to vehicular traffic from Tremont Ave to East/West Blvd from 7:00am - 8:00pm during each Camden Commons event.

How to Get to Camden Commons?

Where it Started

In 2019, a coalition of South End, Wilmore, and Dilworth neighbors approached the City of Charlotte and Charlotte Center City Partners with requests to enhance walkability and pedestrian safety. Through a series of conversations in 2020 and 2021, the City made changes to improve pedestrian crossings throughout the neighborhood.

There was also broad interest in weekend street closures to allow for community space and special events. The first season of Camden Commons in 2022 was a pilot run of what could become a regular weekend happening, where an outdoor living room pops up on a few blocks of Camden Road. We are grateful to Lowe's, with their Lowe's Tech Hub in South End, for being the presenting sponsor of this event.
