Home / Communities / Festivals


For many us in Massachusetts, festivals bring culture home. Whether they’re centered on documentary film, avant-garde jazz, or local folk traditions, festivals build community, encourage cultural dialogue, and drive tourism and economic development. The Festivals Program provides $500 grants that help programmers bring their vision to life, as well as find and develop sustainable audiences. So far, the program has funded over 220 festivals across the state.
