Another reason to love Spartanburg's Downtown Cultural District! 

In the Summer of 2017, Chapman Cultural Center launched programming for Spartanburg's Downtown Cultural District. Through dynamic and diverse offerings, our hope is to support an economically vibrant city for broad community benefit. As part of programming efforts, Chapman Cultural Center will be coordinating live street music and performances by local artists. 

Sign-up to perform!

Currently, performances are scheduled to be held near four street intersections including Liberty St. & East Main St.; Church St. & East Main St.; Magnolia St. & Dunbar St.; and W. Main St. Pocket Park by The Coffee Bar. The live performances will take place Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, concluding in October. Check out the weekly schedule of performers here!

Goals for downtown programming include increasing: pedestrian traffic, retail sales for local businesses, hospitality revenues, use of downtown parking garages, and diversity of both performing artists and audience.
