Charlotte SHOUT! is returning this weekend, and bringing new murals to the Queen City

The festival runs through April 16.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The multi-week Charlotte SHOUT! festival is kicking off Friday, bringing art, music and more to the forefront in the Queen City.

As part of the festivities, new murals are under construction and installations are in the works in Uptown Charlotte. 

The festival will bring multiple events and over a dozen installations to the heart of Charlotte, most of which are free and accessible to all.

Among the installations: A live projection video entitled "BLOOM" will illuminate the McColl Center each night from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., "Affinity" at the NASCAR Hall of Fame Plaza invites people to interact with an immersive light and sound experience inspired by the human brain, and "Easter Eggs on Parade" spotlight a baker's dozen of local artists through giant eggs. 

Festival organizers say some events may have opportunities to purchase a VIP ticket for "an elevated experience," and some events will require a ticket to be purchased. 

The festival runs through April 16. A full list of events can be found on the Charlotte SHOUT! website.

On Saturday, Charlotte SHOUT! organizers issued several cancellations and postponements due to severe weather in the area. They issued the following statement:

We have the most experienced events team in the region, led by Executive Producer Robert Krumbine. We are implementing our inclement weather plan, as needed, prioritizing the participants, artists, and visitors who bring Charlotte SHOUT! to life.

Some of the events and installations of Charlotte Shout! have been, or are being evaluated to be, canceled or postponed. Please refer to www.charlotteshout.com for specifics. We are also posting postponements and cancellations on Instagram and Facebook @CLTshout.
