The River’s Edge Arts Alliance is a non-profit organization, which brings the full spectrum of the arts to Hudson, Marlborough and the surrounding communities.

Our Story:

Known as the Hudson Area Arts Alliance when it first incorporated in March of 1991, the River’s Edge Arts Alliance is a non-profit organization, which has spurred the area’s vibrant cultural and artistic resources to flourish. Supported by a volunteer board of enthusiastic directors and hundreds of members from over 30 area communities, the River’s Edge Arts Alliance offers a broad array of dynamic arts activities in which thousands of adults and children participate. The quality, affordable events, exhibits and classes are held in Hudson and Marlborough, Massachusetts.

The River’s Edge Arts Alliance creates and sustains participant and performance opportunities such as: River’s Edge School of Music, Arts in the Park Concerts, Community Arts Series, Family Fun Festivals, River’s Edge Chorale, River’s Edge Players, Summer Drama Workshop, and many Visual Art Exhibits.

Thanks to the support of area individuals, organizations, businesses, municipalities and foundations that value the arts, which so enrich our lives, many community members participate in these free or inexpensive programs.

The River’s Edge Arts Alliance believes in integrating the arts into everyday community life, as well as helping arts education thrive. We collaborate with schools, art organizations and artists, all the while bringing diverse people together. The River’s Edge Arts Alliance also publishes a monthly e-newsletter and arts calendar.

In 1997, River’s Edge Arts Alliance was given the prestigious honor of being awarded with The Commonwealth Award, which is the state’s highest honor in the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences. It is presented every two years by the Massachusetts Cultural Council to honor individuals and organizations that have made extraordinary contributions to the quality of life, education and economy in Massachusetts through arts and culture.

Many community-minded people value creativity and the way it inspires our lives. Please support the River’s Edge Arts Alliance at a level and in a way that makes sense to you, your family, your business and your institution. We all need the arts more than ever!
