In the Neighborhood

Any topic, any format

In the Neighborhood is your opportunity to share your expertise with the Cambridge community. No event is too small or too big. As long as it explores an area of science, technology, innovation, engineering or the arts, then it’s welcome in this neighborhood.

When is it?

In the Neighborhood events can take place at any time, on any day during CSF 2024, which runs from Monday September 23 to Sunday September 29. 

Where is it?

We’re located in Cambridge, MA, so the majority of events happen in and around the City of Cambridge, but we can make exceptions for site-specific activities happening further afield.

How do I get involved?

If you’d like to organize an event at this year’s Cambridge Science Festival, make sure the following statements apply:

  • My event is free and open to the public
  • My event takes place live and in-person (not solely a virtual event)
  • My event takes place between Monday September 23 – Sunday September 29
  • My event takes place in or near Cambridge, MA.

The Call for Entry form asks for information about your event — read the guide at the bottom of this page and fill out the form when you’re ready.

Call for Entry 

The Call for Entry has two purposes:

  • To give the CSF team as much information as possible about your event.
  • To create your listing in the Digital Program Guide, giving the CSF team the promotional materials required to help publicize your event.

Make sure you’ve read through the In the Neighborhood Call for Entry Guide (opens in new window) before you begin, to make sure you don’t have to stop and start again.


The deadline for completing the Call for Entry is June 15.
