Events & Performances

At the Carrollwood Cultural Center, magic is around every corner. Music fills the air, colors dress the walls, dancers float on stage and drama evokes emotion. The Center has been honored to host an array of local talents from visual artists, instrumentalists, singers, dancers and theatre groups. We also host several outdoor music festivals and events throughout the year. We look forward to introducing more area talent through future performances and concerts. Who knows?

Entertainment

Storyteller Windell Campbell with puppets11 a.m. – Storyteller Windell Campbell

Children will love how Windell Campbell incorporates the art of puppetry with the art of storytelling.  When the visual world of the puppeteer unites with the auditory realm of the storyteller, a unique partnership evolves, providing a unique experience for the audience of children and adults alike!

Grupo Folklorico Mahetzi12 p.m. – Grupo Folklorico Mahetzi

The Mexican dance troupe Grupo Folklorico Mahetzi enjoy teaching the cultural folk dance of Mexico to serve the community.

 

Liam Bauman1:15 p.m. – Liam Bauman Duo

Liam Bauman is a young singer-songwriter currently based in Nashville, TN. His music and deeply introspective lyrics blend into ethereal dreamscapes, transporting listeners to a place of warmth and self-reflection. This is acoustic guitar-driven folk music at its core, but masterful production elevates the songs to something more — subtly-layered instrumentation and vocal harmonies awash in reverb nod to inspiration from the likes of celebrated songwriters Conor Oberst, Elliott Smith, Phoebe Bridgers, or Angel Olsen.

Rebekah Pulley2:45 p.m. – Rebekah Pulley

With an enviable ability to break your heart and shake your soul with her songs, Rebekah Pulley has earned a fruitful living in a diverse setting of house concerts, bars, coffeehouses, and festivals around the globe while garnering eight ‘Best Of The Bay’ awards from Creative Loafing. Rebekah’s songwriting taps roots-rock, blues, old-school country & western, jazz, and gospel to become a must-have for discerning music fans.

His Hem4:15 p.m. – His Hem

Orlando-based alt-folk musician His Hem uses harp, guitar, loop pedals, and his voice to craft songs of desire, longing, joy, and endurance. Since 2017, His Hem has performed his brand of ‘loud, gay, harp music’ throughout the Tampa Bay area and beyond. Normally seen in orchestral environments, His Hem holds the harp close while he pulls, hits, and loops melodies together while his voice soothes or unsettles depending on the song. Influenced by a Catholic upbringing and later conversion into Quakerism, His Hem weaves these experiences together to create songs both ornate and sparse. His Hem is currently working on recording an album for a summer release and looks forward to the world reopening to continue performing for diverse audiences.

Ari Chi 25:45 p.m. – Ari Chi

For the uninitiated, Ari Chi is the ukulele songstress hailing from the Tampa Bay area, making national waves with her blend of R&B, Soul, and Folk. Known for her thoughtful, artsy photos and uber-creative visuals, Ari Chi regularly sets the bar high, yet keeps on delivering.

The Lights on Broadway

We’re back! Please join us for our return to the Carrollwood Cultural Center in our first concert since the pandemic.

After a 2-year hiatus, the Carrollwood Community Chorus is back and ready to perform for you. The last two years have had their fair share ups and downs, but one thing remained the same — our love for Broadway.

After going dark for so long, we are thrilled to see live performances return to Broadway. We’re also happy to turn the lights back on here and celebrate what we love to do: sing together.
