Free Festivals

All year long, Boston features many free celebrations and cross cultural festivals. We're constantly updating this list of free events, so check back often.

Pictured above:  ArtWeek, an annual creative festival featuring hundreds of creative experiences that are participatory, interactive, or offer behind-the-scenes access to the creative process. ArtWeek is held annually starting in late April.
