Culture Shock 401

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.

Pawtucket has always been a city 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.

With your support we'll be able to bring our bigger goals to fruition.

Each contribution brings us one step closer to having the largest independently produced, homegrown music and arts festival, Rhode Island has ever seen. We strive to showcase the hidden talents Rhode Island's creative community has to offer by pairing them with nationally and internationally acclaimed artists. At Culture Shock, expect the unexpected.
