rock on 22nd
Rock on 22nd is a colorful and historic Victorian-style home built in 1900. The ground floor of the house and outdoor property is available to rent for weddings, receptions, meetings, parties, concerts, camps, and more.
As a proud Charlotte-based organization, Girls Rock Charlotte aims to raise the public profile of our local artists while also supporting a community that supports women and gender diverse folks in music and film. The revenue collected from the rental of the house for events will go directly towards furthering our mission.
