Culture Shock Festival - Coming in 2024!!!

Culture Shock is an annual music and arts festival that was created to bring people together, celebrate the many vibrant cultures that exist in this unique area, and offer a sense of connectedness as we adapt to a new normal. This event has been a huge success within this culturally diverse, tight knit, urban community since it’s inception. It would not be possible without the support of local businesses, community based organizations, and all of the beautiful people.

Pawtucket on the rise

It has it’s own unique identity. The best way to continue to build on that identity is to find ways to celebrate the many differences that make us one. Culture Shock is doing just that. We are bringing together different cultures, different genres of music, different mediums of artistic expression, and putting them all on display on one stage to shock the globe with an explosion of music, art, excitement, and love.
