On June 2, 2018, Cambridge Arts will welcome 150,000 plus festival goers to the East Cambridge waterfront for an exuberant celebration of the arts. Occurring in Lechmere Canal Park and along DCR Cambridge Parkway, the festival will feature staged and roving performances, hands-on art-making and more than a hundred artists and food vendors with work for sale.
