Carnaval del Barrio

Celebrate Latino culture and our November production of IN THE HEIGHTS with a vibrant evening of music, art and food! Carnaval del Barrio features live Caribbean and Latin American music from Saludos Compay, a juried exhibition by JM artists of work inspired by Caribbean and Latin American artists, and food trucks selling local specialties.

And that's not all! Cast members from IN THE HEIGHTS will perform selections from the musical, we'll give away one pair of tickets to the musical in a free drawing and Courtyard Coffee & Soda Cafe will feature a special IN THE HEIGHTS-themed coffee beverage.

JMArts is honored to join with the Third Friday ArtWalk and Downtown Music Series to offer this festive — and free — neighborhood carnival! The monthly art walk and music series are sponsored and hosted by the NC Arts Incubator, Courtyard Coffee and many other local and downtown businesses.
