Cultural Pass

The 2021 Cultural Pass is Here!

The 2021 Cultural Pass offers families in Greater Louisville with children ages 0-21 access to participate in arts and cultural activities provided by 51 venues, free of charge, from June 1 through August 8, 2021.

The Cultural Pass is designed to inspire, explore, and discover new experiences; and this year we’re going virtual, which means families can access the content over and over again throughout the summer from the comfort of their homes.

Created from Vision Louisville, the Cultural Pass is an innovative initiative to promote art and culture and improve summer learning in our community. Nearly 240,000 passes have been issued since its inception in 2014.
