Community Celebrations

Join friends and family at the MFA’s community celebrations and make the Museum your own. Each event is planned with the help of local partners, artists, and performers, with music, dance, activities, and programs that represent the art, history, and global influences found throughout Greater Boston.

Five free days include Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Lunar New Year, Memorial Day, Highland Street Foundation Free Fun Friday, and Indigenous Peoples’ Day. Five Wednesday evening celebrations, when Museum admission is free after 4 pm, include Latinx Heritage Night, ASL Night, Diwali, Hanukkah, and Juneteenth. Nowruz 2020 is on a Saturday with free activities.

Take a look at our full lineup of upcoming community celebrations—we look forward to welcoming you at one soon!
