Cultural Spotlight: Arts Splash Summer Concert Series

 The High Point Arts Council is pleased to announce our 2023 summer outdoor concert series – Arts Splash. This season’s line up includes artists highlighting various genres of music: Motown, Soul, Folk, Blues, Latin, and Jazz. This year we are changing the date of our free Arts Splash concerts to be held on Fridays* from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.

Concert-goers are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, and blankets. Food and dessert trucks will be available at each concert. Alcohol will be available for purchase from Paddled South; however, no outside alcohol will be allowed in. If there is a threat of rain, call 336.889.2787 (ARTS), or visit our social media pages after 4:00 p.m. Friday to get the latest update on the event. If we are able, our rain location site will be inside the High Point Arts Council at 121 S Centennial St High Point, NC 27260. For more exciting updates, like the High Point Arts Council’s social media pages.

*Please note that Arts Splash has moved from Sunday evenings to Friday evenings. This change was made in hopes of increasing participation and reducing crossover with the MUSEP concert series that our friends in Greensboro host.
