"Hey, where's the River?"
Cambridge Arts Council takes the river to Mass Ave for the 35th Annual Cambridge River Festival.
The Cambridge River Festival has occurred on the banks of the Charles River since its inception in 1977. This year, due to overlapping major construction projects and large scale events taking place on this historical footprint, Cambridge Arts has decided to celebrate our 35th Anniversary of the River Festival in the heart of the Central Square Cultural District. This year's River Festival will take place along Massachusetts Avenue from Prospect St. to Sidney St. then turn continuing down Sidney Street from Mass Ave to Pilgrim Street.
The Cambridge River Festival is an annual celebration of the arts, attracting 200,000 per year. This free event will feature jazz, folk, roots and world music performances, dance, art demonstrations, family art-making activities and over 150 specialty food purveyors and craftfolks and artisans!
