So Much Fest is an event in memory of Soheil Mojarrad’s vision of community, abundance, and joy through gathering, dancing, and celebrating life together

The Reason We Are Here

Over the past three years, local artists have generously volunteered their talents to enchant us with a musical medley spanning various genres. This initiative aims to commemorate the life of Soheil Mojarrad and other victims of police violence in Raleigh and beyond.

Soheil meant so much to many people of all walks of life. Let us strive to prevent further tragedies at the hands of those entrusted to protect us.

We extend an invitation to delve deeper into the origins and significance of this event, as well as our commitment to organizing future gatherings that raise awareness and foster community unity, all while honoring Soheil’s memory through music and dance.
