Join us for Harvard Universityís ARTS FIRST Festival!

Produced by the Office for the Arts at Harvard, this annual campus-wide event takes place April 24-28 and showcases the expansive creativity and innovation of Harvard students, staff, alums and faculty.

Enjoy the dynamic imagination and cultural expression at the heart of this festival by visiting many of the universityís iconic indoor and outdoor spaces transformed by artmaking and open for all to explore.

Headlining events include a Drag Show emcee'd by environmental activist Pattie Gonia and Drag Queen Story Hour with Boston's Lilly Rose Valore, Jazz on the Plaza, a Performance Fair of short interdisciplinary performances taking place simultaneously on 10 stages throughout the day, and much more.

The festival is open to all, family-friendly and mostly free (some ticketed events charge for admission.) The majority of events are also accessible for wheelchairs and other mobility devices.

The Office for the Arts invites everyone to join us at the ARTS FIRST Festival at Harvard University.
