Important information regarding Aug 13th in-person event: Tonight's performance is currently moving forward but is weather-dependent. To ensure safety it would be cancelled if severe weather occurred during the event.

Each year, for one evening in June, the Cambridge Celebration of the Arts (CCA) presents the community with a variety of works by local artists and artists connected to our community.  The event showcases many different styles and genres of art in the Visual, Literary and Performing Arts categories.

In 2020, the City of Cambridge & Toyota proudly presented our first ever Cambridge Celebration of the Arts Youtube/Facebook Premier event.  

What is happening this year?  In 2021 we are proud to share that we are showcasing two performing artists.  One on Friday, July 9th and the second on Friday, August 13th, 2021.

Friday, August 13th - The Mark Manfini Band - In-person/ Live Streamed Event @ 7:00 PM at Churchill Park
