The Last Weekend in April

Every year, the Boston College Arts Festival brings the Boston College and surrounding communities together to celebrate the arts. In 2017, the 19th annual Arts Festival once again invited the community to experience the variety of arts at Boston College firsthand. A talented group of more than 1,000 student and faculty artists presented music, theater, dance, poetry, film, painting, sculpture, and more. 

An online PDF version of last year's Arts Festival Brochure, which includes a full schedule of events and detailed descriptions of features and shows, is available here.

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.
