This year’s event is organized by the City Manager’s Office, Cambridge Arts, and the Central Square BID, with support from numerous city departments. Originally conceived in 1996 as part of the City of Cambridge’s 150th anniversary celebration, the Dance Party attracts young and old to join in the festivities.
