The Hanover Cultural Council wants to hear from you!

Each year, the Hanover Cultural Council provides financial support to activities that bring us together as a community and highlight what makes Hanover special. Through our grant program, we sponsor projects, performances, and programs in the arts, sciences, humanities, history, cultural awareness, dramatic arts, and music.

Using a combination of funds from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and money raised at Hanover Day, the Council was able to award just over $20,000 to local organizations for activities in the coming year, including historical programs, theatrical performances, concerts, school field trips, gardening-related programs, kids’ activities, and discounted passes to area museums.

The Cultural Council is gathering feedback and ideas from Hanover residents as we set our priorities for future grant cycles. Please take a few minutes to answer this anonymous, seven-question survey:

Hanover Day 2020 will be here before you know it! If you would like to get involved in planning this year’s festival, please contact Cultural Council Chairman Chris Haraden at

Thank you for your opinions, ideas, and continued support!
