1201 Elizabeth Ave., Charlotte
Central Piedmont Community College campus
This annual arts festival incorporates a mix of visual arts, literature, film, and performing arts. It used to be known as ArtsFest, but changed its name to Sensoria in 2010. It’s a small festival that was started as a means to promote college programs and has grown into a more diverse local event.
True to its roots, the festival attracts the college crowd (a lot of instructors are speakers and performers), but the regional talent is strong and the workshops are top-notch.
