Aquinnah Circle Cultural District Grand Opening
June 24th at 3 PM at the top of the Circle
The Wampanoag Tribe & Town of Aquinnah cordially invites you to join us as we celebrate the opening of the Aquinnah Circle Cultural District (ACCD). A unique collaboration between the Town, Tribe, and several partner organizations has made this district designation by the Massachusetts Cultural Council possible. It has been a very positive process that we believe is a sign of good things to come.
The MCC started the Massachusetts Cultural District Initiative in 2010, to stimulate new arts and cultural activity in towns as well as attract creative business to the district areas. A Cultural District is a specific area in a town that has a concentration of cultural facilities, activities and assets.
The ACCD is home to the Gay Head Cliffs Lookout, Gay Head Light, Aquinnah Cultural Center, numerous Wampanoag tribal member-owned restaurants & retail shops featuring local arts & cuisine, beautiful parks for picnicking, and hiking trails to explore and access the nearby Moshup Beach. The Town and Tribe will use the Aquinnah Circle’s new designation to help address the many long-standing challenges we face while keeping its natural beauty and integrity intact.
Please join us for this wonderful celebration!
