Chashama-Rama invites artists, performers, and communities to celebrate the arts with a feast for the senses in a fun and immersive atmosphere. Come along and play! Fly through the air with Acro Yoga, partake in Chocolate Body Painting by Sid Chidiac, and celebrate with the artists and entrepreneurs who make our city sparkle.

“Chashama-Rama is a dream come true for me,” says Anita Durst, Founder of Chashama. “The happening is really a celebration of the artists and entrepreneurs who make our city sparkle.”

Performers include Drag TikTok superstar Darrell Thorne, master of fire Flambeau, and Delirious Hair Designer Edisa Weeks. Chashama-Rama will also feature an array of interactive exhibits including the African-American Roller-Whiz-on-Wheels Troup; and multimedia artist Chee Bravo’s immersive rainbow-colored meditation entitled “Free Me- The Ritual”.
