The Art of Play

The tradition continues again this year as we celebrate Massachusetts's largest arts, music and cultural festival, this outdoor arts event is scheduled to return on Sunday, September 21st from 11AM till 6PM. On Park Ave. between Worcester's Pleasant & Highland Streets, more than 250 artists and crafters will display unique, handmade goods. A youth market will be filled with wares by our creative under the age of 18, and area non-profits will be on hand showcasing the area’s great causes.

A variety of food trucks will line the pathway towards our food court, so arrive hungry: Plenty of Vegan and vegetarian dishes will be available.  While noshing, there is full day’s schedule of street performances, dance troupes ready to entertain in addition to a number of bands set to perform on two stages. With a focus on the Art of Play, we've also lined up hands-on kids’ activities and interactive creative features for fun-lovers of all ages to investigate. Our lineups will continuously be updated while new acts come on board, and once available head to our YouTube channel and check out what we have in store for you.  This event is free so where else would you rather be?
