Beautiful venue!

-Stunning backdrop for a ceremony and reception. Exceptional value for the price point! Also super convenient parking garage one block away ($5 weekend parking!)
-Beautiful courtyard for outdoor photography (or an outdoor ceremony if you want, we opted to have ours indoors)
-Very helpful and kind staff that answered all our questions! And we were highly impressed with the venue person present on the day of our wedding, who really went above and beyond to make our day great.
-Highly highly recommend the Multicultural Arts Center!

Beautiful Space

We had an amazing experience with the Multicultural Arts Center. Adria was always responsive and helpful. The space is stunning. The restrictions are completely reasonable for a historic venue. With covid going on they were always incredibly communicative about changing rules.

Beautiful Venue in the City

The staff at the Multicultural Arts Center set us up for success from the start with an awesome list of local caterers, and they continued to be responsive and helpful throughout the year it took us to plan our wedding. Day of, the staff on site helped our coordinator (definitely recommend getting a day-of coordinator for the space!) and caterer make sure set up, lighting, and breakdown all proceeded without a hitch.

The theater space itself is so lovely and distinctive, and it's a perfect size for a medium wedding. The option to use the park outside for the ceremony and the gallery for extra cocktail space provides variety and convenience all in one. An unforgettable spot for a wedding in Cambridge!
