A VIBE CALLED FRESH

A Vibe Called Fresh is a festival celebration harnessing joy to showcase the art, history, and culture of Charlotte’s West End corridor. One of the primary missions is to encourage homeownership, by offering access to introductory education, tools, and resources to historically disenfranchised communities. This festival is free to attend and features live music, live performances, housing resources, career recruiting, civic information, art exhibitions, housing informational panel discussions, neighborhood information, vendors and so much more.  Our method is to create intrigue by acting as the applesauce masking the taste of medicine, with an incredibly fun and engaging environment for both collaborators and attendees.

Vi Lyles – Mayor of Charlotte

Rob Phocas – City of Charlotte – Director of Sustainability

Julie Eiselt – Mayor Pro Tem
