Concenergy 2022 Artists Ball
Musicians, visual artists, poets, and small businesses come together in a combined end-of-year celebration. Anyone who appreciates art, culture, and supporting local is welcome to attend and fully participate in all activities.
Admittedly, the Ball is a little over the top (think Met Gala but with more swank and local flair). Attire is avant-garde, creative, and futuristic. The theme this year is “The Future Is Now”, so put a little thought into your dress.
Expect a red carpet event with live music, fashion exhibitions, hair show and competitions, visual art, poetry exhibitions, late-night food trucks, craft cocktails. There will be plenty of opportunities to dance and engage.
