Since the 1920’s the Grady Cole
Center and American Legion Memorial Stadium have hosted events of all sizes,
producing millions of memories in Charlotte. Legends, like Lynyrd Skynyrd and
Christina Aguilera, have played at our venues; foundations were created for some of
sports entertainment's finest: from Jim Crockett Promotions/NWA wrestling to UFC;
Charlotte’s professional sports
also originated here: the Dixie League’s Charlotte Clippers played exhibition
games with the NFL teams of the 1940’s; the Carolina Lightnin’ won the Queen
City its first ever professional championship; today the Charlotte Hounds of
the MLL are the Carolinas’ premier lacrosse team.
Host your next concert or major event at the
Grady Cole Center or bring the family out for a good time and join generations
of Charlotteans that have done the same.
