After attending one of Lowell's amazing festivals, you will understand why Lowell is a top destination for events in Massachusetts.

What makes Lowell unlike any other? It’s a genuinely friendly, creative city that offers you abundant opportunities to experience and celebrate its arts, heritage and culture, all with the backdrop of unique, man-made canalways and scenic natural settings. Here you’ll find a friendly community with a thriving arts and culture scene, interesting galleries and the largest artist community in the Northeast.

Festivals and celebrations such as the Lowell Folk Festival, Southeast Asian Water Festival, Monster Bash, City of Lights Parade and Winterfest are just a few of the events that make Lowell such a great place to live, work and visit.
