River Festival

Performer at piano during the 2014 Cambridge River Festival.

Cambridge Arts River Festival is an annual celebration of the arts, attracting 200,000+ festival-goers. 

This free event features jazz, folk, indie, rock, and world music performances, dance, poetry, theater, art demonstrations, family art-making activities and over 100 specialty food purveyors and craftspeople.

For our 35th Anniversary, River Festival moved from the banks of the Charles to the Central Square Cultural District—the cultural hub of Cambridge. The festival will remain in Central Square for 2015, but we are hoping to return to our historical home along the river soon.

 BEST Festival Nominee!
