• BOOM Echoes Slide

BOOM is partnering with Open Streets 704 to introduce the first BOOM Echoes.

BOOM Echoes is a new initiative where we are trying to bottle some of that creative excitement, energy and community spirit that makes BOOM so magical, and take it into other neighborhoods. This is the idea: the big BOOM happens in the Spring, in Plaza Midwood. Then the little Echoes will happen in other parts of the city, other times of the year.

Come be part of the very first one on Sunday, Sept 30, 2018.

  • WHAT:
    A big open community “living room” featuring a wide variety of performances and other creative activities led by diverse local talent. All open to everyone, kid & dog friendly, and free!
  • WHERE:
    At the intersection of South Summit Ave and the Greenway (roughly at 500 S Summit Ave., 28208) Wesley Heights Neighborhood.
  • WHEN:
    1:00 – 5:00 pm, Sunday, September 30

Check back soon for more details!

Below we include information about BOOM 2018, which took place in April in Plaza Midwood. Announcement/Call for Entries for BOOM 2019 coming soon!

Three days of art, performance and the unexpected.

The BOOM festival is Charlotte’s annual showcase of contemporary and experimental art created on the fringes of popular culture. We’ve gathered a unique coalition of artists, volunteers, nonprofits, local businesses and neighborhood organizations to transform the way art is made and shared in the Queen City. Tickets are $10 and many of our events are free admission. BOOM has something for everyone, no matter your age or taste, so join us in Plaza Midwood the weekend of April 20-22, 2018.
