When you mix one of Charlotte’s most eclectic neighborhoods, over 120 performances and installations, and more than 300 talented and diverse artists, you get one of the year’s most anticipated festivals. BOOM Charlotte will take place April 26-28 in the streets of Plaza Midwood.
“Into its fourth year now, BOOM continues its exponential growth. We are so grateful for the way the broad artistic community and the city has embraced the festival,” Manoj Kesavan, founder of the BOOM festival, told CharlotteFive.
The thing that sets BOOM apart from every other arts festival that comes through Charlotte is that it brings together people of all races, ages, sexual orientations and even art forms. You’ll be able to witness everything from traditional museum art to up-and-coming artists, classical music to hip-hop, as well as a street circus and Carnival-style dance performances. The entire cultural ecosystem of Charlotte is likely represented.
