Greetings from Greater New Haven
International Festival of Arts & Ideas 2021: Imagine
International Festival of Arts & Ideas
May 14 - June 27, 202

In 2020, the IFAI reinvented their summer Festival at the last second, launching a 2-month virtual extravaganza of 200+ events that drew more than 120,000 people from throughout the world. Now, they're taking what we learned from their 2020 virtual programming and stepping into the future, listening to our local and global communities to Imagine 2021 together.

A predominantly virtual festival, Festival 2021 will take place May 14 - June 27, 2021, and our 200+ events—80% free—will feature such luminaries as Jacob’s Pillow-awardee choreographer Ronald K. Brown, Indigenous playwright and Forbes “30 under 30" theater director Madeline Sayet, as well as a high drama, high fashion Hair Art show. We'll share the full May and June programming line-up this spring when events are open for reservation.

Imagine New Haven. Imagina un mundo sin fronteras. Imagine music. Imagine theater. Imagine a better world. Imagine yourself—at Festival 2021.
