City of the Arts

The arts in Worcester are thriving — from niche galleries to the Worcester Art Museum’s world-class collections; from Broadway shows at The Hanover Theatre to concerts at Mechanics Hall, Tuckerman Hall, the Palladium, and the DCU Center.

Worcester’s stART on the Street is central Massachusetts’ largest art, music, and performance festival. And remember to check out the (often free) performances and exhibitions at other Worcester colleges like Assumption College, the College of the Holy Cross, and Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI).
