A unique collaboration brought to you by ArtsGreensboro
Come to Greensboro, North Carolina, for 17DAYS Arts & Culture Festival, running September 9 through September 25, 2016, and experience more than 100 events across the city in dozens of some of the South’s most charming and unique venues. From musical classics to Americana roots-rock, and from award-winning theatre and dance to storytelling, the visual arts, galleries, and everything in between, 17DAYS is a celebration of all things beautiful and exciting.
ArtsGreensboro’s 17DAYS Arts & Culture Festival has firmly established itself as a major arts destination event for North Carolina. What’s unique about 17DAYS is the collaborative nature of the Festival’s vision: more than 70 arts & entertainment presenters, arts producers, venues and other organizations work together towards 100+ events within the Festival’s two-and-a-half week calendar. This year’s festival runs from September 9 through September 25, and is hosted by ArtsGreensboro.
17DAYS FESTIVAL was a major success in 2015. Only in its fifth year—and with the addition of the National Folk Festival on opening weekend and the Heart of North Carolina Storytelling Festival during closing weekend—17DAYS boasted total attendance of nearly 200,000 for 100+ events throughout Greensboro. From top-flight entertainers and arts events, concerts from Buckwheat Zydeco and Dom Flemons, exhibits at Greenhill and the Weatherspoon Art Museum, and the Living Art Greensboro bodypainting competition, to Greensboro Symphony concerts, dance performances, Triad Stage‘s lauded production of Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, pop-up events, tastings at local vintners and micro-breweries, street festivals, a Black Mountain College celebration at Scuppernong Books, artist studio tours, and jazz and blues events indoors and out, there was something for everyone!
