With nearly 200 installations, performances, events, and activations in tow, SHOUT! has returned and will transform Charlotte with daytime and nighttime activities, April 1-17—with a majority of the events being free. The festival, which is presented by Atrium Health and Bank of America and produced by Charlotte Center City Partners, has four prominent pillars: Music, Food, Art, and Ideas. With so many opportunities for entertainment and conversation, you might be wondering how to even get started. Below, we have the day-to-day line-up, organized by both pillar and day. Click the button below each description to see the line-up of events. Head to the SHOUT! website or follow them on Instagram to stay up to date with the latest events and full offerings.
