Come outside and play as warm weather arrives. During May through July, the Community Development Department wants to partner with local businesses and organizations to sponsor free events in squares and neighborhoods across the city. Through Cambridge Plays, we want to:

  • Activate public spaces like city owned parks and plazas
  • Build community and increase access to cultural programming
  • Foster a welcoming and anti-racist environment
  • Support Cambridge’s local businesses
  • Celebrate Cambridge’s cultural diversity
We are no longer taking applications for the 2023 Cambridge Plays season. Please attend an activity this summer! 


Please contact the Community Development Department at edd@cambridgema.gov.
