The Town of Natick, MA​ received the designation of "Cultural District" in 2012, thus the Natick Center Cultural Districtwas born. We were part of the 14 original districts in the Commonwealth. This summer our five year designation was up for renewal. A few months ago we submitted our application for re-designation and we recently received notice from the Mass Cultural Councilthat Natick received the "Cultural District" designation for another 5 years!  Having a strong arts and cultural presence in town creates an dynamic environment, adds to the livability of a community and it's free, and open to all residents to experience. We're featured in the Boston Globe article about cultural districts at: http://ow.ly/aEUU30fyKNu

Our monthly newsletter highlights what's happening and district news please see our November NewsletterFor unique walking tours around Natick Center visit this page on our website.  We have many tours including those on public art, the Harwood baseball factory, Natick Praying Indian Burial ground and many more!

We plan to continue on in this mission over the next 5 years and if you'd like to join us we offer a yearly membership of only $25 per person or $50 per family.
