Concenergy Ball, Bazaar and Vendor Market
December 10, 2022 @ 11:00 am
ATC Festivals hosts many festivals; however, our largest and most creative is the CONCENERGY year-end series which always occurs on the 2nd weekend of December. Think of it as a combined year-end celebration and platform for emerging artists, designers, and small businesses to announce and launch their brand and its offerings for the upcoming year.
The CONCENERGY BALL is a multi-genre industry celebration that serves as the culminating event of the weekend. 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 and hair exhibitions, visual art, poetry exhibitions, late-night food trucks, and craft cocktails. There will be plenty of opportunities to dance and engage with the artists.
