The BOOM festival takes place in the heart of Charlotte’s historic and funky Plaza Midwood neighborhood. Our “Fringe” performances are within a short walk of each other at Petra’s Bar, Snug Harbor, Open Door Studios. We also have multiple art installations happening around the area, as well as a Fringe performance inside an inflatable igloo off Pecan Avenue. Be sure to check out “La Raza Cósmica: An Unbounded Visual Art Exhibition” and our Saturday Street Art & Popup Performances. Our outdoor stage, hang out area and epicenter of BOOM is called the Intersection, which is located across the street from the venues and offers free performances and activities all three days.
