Come and join us for this amazing event that will celebrate all forms of art in our community! Bring the family out on the 5th for the indoor/outdoor festival. We will feature local visual, musical, spoken word and performing artists & ethnic dancers. We will have food trucks on premises.


We are excited to share new innovations of artist programming, community engagement and social good in Uptown’s historic, socially-aligned venue: Studio 229 on Brevard at The Brooklyn Collective, 229 S. Brevard

All art sales benefit the artist and our mission: building a community committed to racial equity through the ARTS by creating equity art exhibitions, building cultural bridges and empowering underinvested local artists.
