Welcome to the Downtown Lynn Cultural District

In 2012, the Massachusetts Cultural Council designated a portion of Downtown Lynn as one of the Commonwealth’s inaugural Cultural Districts. Although appointed in 2012, the history of arts and culture activism in Downtown Lynn goes back decades. Countless individuals and organizations have contributed their time and energy to Downtown Lynn. The Downtown Lynn Cultural District is a keeper of this movement and collaborates with cultural partners, both new and well-established, to foster a shared creative and cohesive vision for the city’s cultural community.
