During the annual Macy’s Arts Sampler, all events are free and open to the public thanks to the generous sponsorship of Macy’s. Macy’s Arts Sampler, presented by ArtsWave, celebrates the creative things —theater, dance, museums, music, and festivals — happening in large and small ways throughout our region. These weekends are great opportunities for families, friends, and neighbors to connect with one another and experience the arts through free events.
