Starlight Square, Cambridge's award-winning, outdoor community venue, is back! Created by the Central Square Business Improvement District and Flagg Street Studio in 2020, Starlight has hosted over 250 free performances and public gatherings. Yours could be next!

In preparation for a Spring 2022 re-opening, we are excited to share a new RFP for programming partners. It will be open until Sunday, March 27 at 11:59 p.m. In years past, we have seen all kinds of submissions, from hip hop cyphers and Flamenco to comic book festivals and outdoor science classes. The best part of Starlight is that it is flexible enough to accommodate the breadth of our community's creativity. We encourage anyone, all ages, to apply.

All applications will be reviewed and graded by the Starlight Square Selection Committee, a committee of 10 community members. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance by the end of April, and a final Spring/Summer season will be made available to the public in May.
