NextNOW Fest at The Hall CP

Where Creativity and Community Converge
Sunday, September 19, 2021 • 11AM-3PM


The Clarice’s NextNOW Fest is an inspiring arts experience that celebrates imagination, creativity and community. By amplifying the voices of intriguing, inventive artists from around campus and our community, NextNOW Fest creates a forward-looking microcosm where art transforms our future and (re)connects us all.

NextNOW Fest is a signature event in University of Maryland's new Arts for All initiative, which leverages the combined power of the arts, technology and social justice to address the grand challenges of our time. In addition to our traditional student, academic and touring arts lineup at The Clarice on Sep 17 and 18, we’re thrilled to forge new partnerships with more student-led groups, academic departments and community organizations to expand the festival to seven days at sites throughout campus and into College Park!

This year's festival concludes with a series of thrilling performances and engaging, participatory workshops in partnership with The Hall CP. The Hall CP is a restaurant, bar and event space that creates unlimited opportunity for friends to congregate, business partners and colleagues to meet and talent to connect. At any given time, you could grab a coffee, meet your next deadline, create the next big idea, catch a concert or attend an event. The Hall welcomes the entire community, including College Park and beyond. It’s a synergistic hub for creatives, innovators, musicians and more.

In support of Arts for All, NextNOW Fest events at The Hall CP are generously sponsored by Terrapin Development Company.
