Every year, the Boston College Arts Festival brings the Boston College and surrounding communities together to celebrate the arts. In 2016, the 18th annual Arts Festival committee will once again invite the community to experience the variety of arts at Boston College firsthand. A talented group of more than 1,000 student and faculty artists will present music, theater, dance, poetry, film, painting, sculpture, and more.

With over 16,000 visitors from Boston College and the surrounding community coming in to celebrate every year, the Arts Festival never fails to be one of the most vibrant and exciting events at Boston College.  Students have the added bonus of relieving end-of-semester stress, while members of the surrounding communities are given the opportunity to delight in all forms of art, from the laugh-out-loud humor offered by comedy groups, to the transcendent beauty of the many dance ensembles, to the boldness of the studio art students' work.
