Join Cambridge Arts for our 2020 Stream Festival on Saturday, June 6, from 2 to 9:20 p.m. It’s the City’s annual River Festival reimagined as an online showcase of music, dance, theater, the Peoples Sculpture Race, Mermaid Promenade, the Climate Action Pavilion, and art activities for children. And preview the festival below.

The Cambridge Arts Stream Festival is proud to partner with Cambridge Community Television to present this work on our website as well as on CCTV’s channel and streaming platforms. Preview the festival at cambridgema.gov/streamfest, then on the day of the festival watch there or on CCTV's Channel 9, cctvcambridge.org/channel09. Live presentations will be streamed on the Facebook pages of CCTV (https://www.facebook.com/cctvcambridge/) and CambridgeArts (https://www.facebook.com/CambridgeArtsCouncil/

Performers and presenters will include Jonathan Suazo, Ken Field, Bob Toabe, Julian Loida, Rachel Sumner, Central Square Theater's Act Up and Vote, Joshua Wolf Coleman, Abilities Dance, Midday Movement, The Dance Complex, Jean-Dany Joachim, Deidre Tao, and Bren Bataclan. Plus a virtual tour of Harvard Art Museums' "Painting Edo" exhibit.

With the health and safety of our artists, performers, audiences, vendors, suppliers, volunteers and staff as a primary consideration, the City of Cambridge and Cambridge Arts decided in April to reimagine the Cambridge Arts annual, live River Festival as a virtual event.

$20,000 that would have been used to produce the 2020 River Festival has been contributed to the Cambridge Artist Relief Fund, based at the Cambridge Community Foundation. Learn more about resources available for the arts community.
