Click here to register for the Electric Dash!
Electric Dash is glow-in-the-dark run from Bangor’s historic West Market Square to Waterfront Festival Grounds directly following the fifth annual KahBang Festival Kick-Off. The best part? Our run ends in a dance party to celebrate your successful run (or walk) of fun at our Waterfront Dance Stage! After the run, your registration also allows your access to the KahBang Campsite’s Late Late Stage area. We have selected the Children’s Tumor Foundation as this years co-benefactor of our inaugural Electric Dash. We are proud to sport blue and green glow sticks in support of their amazing mission and dedication to ending Neurofibromatosis through research.
Running isn't for everyone and we understand that both KBA and CTF supportors can be found locally and afar. We hope that you will consider being there with us in spirit on race day by making a donation today!
When & Where
Launchpad is a non-profit organization built to serve as a catalyst for creative expression, ideas and collaborations. Through our programs and initiatives, we seek to develop and promote creativity and ensure the sustainability of the arts and artistic ambition.
Launchpad builds creative connections in Maine and beyond through artist residencies, arts education, and artist-led projects and events. Launchpad was created with a slate of initiatives and programs to strengthen the existing Maine artistic landscape. These include its flagship project, the Launchpad Arts Incubator, the HelpArt initiative and the Central Gallery.
Central Gallery is a multi-discipline arts venue that promotes creativity through its mission to present contemporary, emerging and unconventional art, artists and ideas. The gallery helps emerging and mid-career artist’s present new work, while making art and creativity more accessible to the general public. Each year, the space typically presents 12 visual arts exhibitions as well as hosting various events and programs.
As a Space, we stand strongly behind our belief that galleries should be uncensored, all ages and rotate frequently to provide emerging artists with the opportunity to find as many new audiences for their work as possible. Phase I of renovations at this formerly vacant space were completed in May 2014. The Phase II fundraising campaign is set to launch in late 2015, completing & nearly doubling the size of the venue.
