Cambridge Arts River Festival Invites Nonprofits to Apply for Free Table Space by May 17Source: City of Cambridge

Calling all Cambridge nonprofits: your chance to schmooze, share, and strut your stuff at the 2024 Cambridge Arts River Festival has arrived. The arts are back on the banks of the Charles, and the city is ringing in local culture with a riverfront bash on June 15th, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., according to the latest scoop from Cambridge Arts.

Nonprofits have the opportunity to bag a free spot — but, here’s the catch, you gotta hustle for space. As spots are as coveted as front-row tickets to a Broadway show, and Cambridge Arts will be doling them out first-come, first-served. Arts and cultural groups get the VIP treatment with preference, but here's the twist – you've got to bring your own gear, think tables, tents, the whole nine yards.

Heads up though, if you're eyeing a booth, you're in for a silent auction atmosphere because selling is a no-go due to licensing fun. But don't fret, you can still dazzle the crowd with demonstrations – just spell it out on the application, and hope it gets the green light.

The deadline to get on the list is May 17, so mark it, set reminders, do whatever it takes because nobody wants to be the outfit left out of the festival that's been the talk of the town since, well, forever. For those pencil pushers, get your forms filled and samples of materials shipped off to Maura Mendoza – she's the gatekeeper, and the one you'll want to schmooze, at [email protected], as announced by Cambridge Arts.

So all you nonprofits, it's time to get creative, interactive and informational because this is your shot to shine by the river, mingle with the community, and potentially drum up some support for your cause. And remember, it's not just about being seen, it's about being part of Cambridge's cultural jamboree.
