When: Fri., Aug. 14, 7 p.m. and Sat., Aug. 15, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. 2015
There are some folks who can’t let the memory of 1987’s Dirty Dancing go. Hence this gathering around Lake Lure, where scenes were filmed. The festivities kick off with a screening on Friday. That’s followed by a day-long series of events on Saturday. In the mix — live music, dance lessons, watermelon games (see if you can carry one as good as Baby), a “lake lift” competition and more.

Price: Free on Aug. 14; $22 on Aug. 15.
