Out to Lunch Logo Contest

In partnership with the City of Worcester, the WCC is proud to celebrate 10 years of Out to Lunch Festivals on the Worcester Common Oval. We are currently seeking a new logo to promote the festival series and reflect on many great years of performance, food, culture, and community during the summer event.

Out to Lunch Festival and Farmers' Market 2019 Intermission Participation Survey 


The City of Worcester, and the Worcester Cultural Coalition, invite you to participate in the Out to Lunch Festival and Farmers’ Market, located on the historic Worcester Common Oval in downtown Worcester. The Out to Lunch Festival and Farmers' Market runs every Thursday from June 20, 2019 through August 29th (with the exception of July 4, 2019). The  10-week concert series brings music, local food and produce, and art to downtown. This year we are celebrating 10 years of the festival series! There are a few slots left for this summer's intermission performance set list. 

In preparation for another incredible year, we are currently securing community organization and youth intermission act performances to showcase Worcester’s creative community and youngest talents to hundreds of downtown workers and residents. Intermission performances should run from 15-20 minutes. 

 In 2018, we attracted approximately 500 people per week, which ranged from downtown professionals, families, and visitors. With your participation, we will continue to successfully grow the festival series and celebrate community in Worcester. 

We look forward to another colorful summer filled with fresh food and summer festivities, and we invite you to join us and be part of this fantastic event! Please complete the Intermission Participation Survey by Wednesday, June 4th to share your information with the event planning team.
