This month’s five essential dates


History enthusiasts take note: In collaboration with the Charlotte Folk Society, the Charlotte Museum of History’s annual Backcountry Days Festival explores the cultures and traditions of our region’s early residents, from European colonists to the Catawba Indian Nation. Bring a picnic blanket and stay for the outdoor concert. The festival is free to attend, and food will be available for purchase.


Bank of America Stadium will be buzzing when the Carolina Panthers host their first regular season home game vs. the Los Angeles Rams, the reigning NFC champs. Kickoff is at 1 p.m.; ticket prices vary.


Get a glimpse inside seven private residences on the 47th annual Dilworth Home Tour. This year’s tour of one of Charlotte’s most beloved neighborhoods includes a classic Craftsman bungalow, an American Foursquare and a renovated condominium. A portion of proceeds from ticket sales — $25 in advance, $30 if purchased after Sept. 12 — will support Dilworth Elementary School.


Relax your mind and body at Flow Fest, a two-day festival at the U.S. National Whitewater Center featuring yoga classes and workshops, nature hikes, live music and vendors offering sustainable and ethically produced goods. Take mindfulness to another level with Flow Fest Immersion, an overnight experience that includes guided meditation, a three-course Ayurvedic dinner, sunrise yoga and breakfast. The festival is free, though some events may require pre-registration. Flow Fest Immersion costs $200 per person.
