“We had great plans for Charlotte SHOUT! 2021 that are just going to have to wait a little longer,” said Blumenthal Performing Arts CEO Tom Gabbard. “Charlotte is ready for a big regional festival that melds together local and international artists, thought leaders, and loads of free activities to bring our community together. Count on us to be back when circumstances are right to safely host a great arts festival and community celebration.”

The festival celebrates music, food, and arts and will be rescheduled to a to-be-determined date next year.

Ticketholders will be contacted about being refunded in the coming days.
