Cultural District

A Foundation to Build on


Art, music and culture are alive and well in the City of Bedford. Citizens and visitors can enjoy an art gallery, historic sites, outdoor music performances and live theater. There are a variety of classes and programs for all ages at our new Bedford Library and the Boys Ranch Activity Center. All this plus outdoor festivals and plenty of green space within a short walk from the main municipal complex.

Redevelopment Plan

The City Council is embarking on a redevelopment plan for central Bedford and the promotion of arts and culture is expected to be a key component of this redevelopment. The Bedford Cultural Commission is working to develop a Strategic Plan for the Cultural District. The Cultural Commission's efforts will provide important data and insights for Council's redevelopment decisions. We welcome your input!
