Cultural Pass

The 2020 Virtual Cultural Pass offers families in Greater Louisville with children ages 0-21 access to participate in arts and cultural activities provided by more than 60 venues, free of charge, from June 1 through August 8, 2020.

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.

Register for your Free 2020 Virtual Cultural Pass

Visit your local library’s website (links below) and follow their link to sign up for the 2020 Virtual Cultural Pass and the Summer Reading Program. Families will not receive paper passes as in previous years.  This year all the activities will be accessed by the library’s software once you’ve signed up.  You’ll see badge icons for each participating venue and each of those venues will have a special website link with their virtual Cultural Pass activities just for pass holders.  When you’ve completed the fun activities they’ve provided, you’ll click your badge on the library’s website and it will “light up” to congratulate you.
