The KahBang Art Festival hosts pop-up galleries and exhibitions in downtown Bangor and on the Bangor Waterfront. The annual art festival is curated and developed by KahBang Arts and focuses on bringing a variety of different artists into its galleries and spaces.

Thanks to the efforts of the folks at Central Street Farmhouse, the Pocket Park in downtown Bangor is in the midst of restoration and will host events and exhibits during the KahBang festival in August. KahBang Arts has supported the restoration of this space through a donation from its Community Fund and will host art displays in the park as part of the 2012 art festival.
