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.
