The Raleigh arts and music festival Artsplosure is celebrating its 35 anniversary this year. The festival was started as a way to get Raleigh residents to visit the downtown. Now, Artsplosure is struggling to remain relevant with all of the changes to the downtown over the years. Around the time of the festival, there will be at least five other festivals or events in downtown Raleigh. Promoters are looking for ways to attract attendees to keep the festival alive.
