The Newburyport Literary Festival will be held in various venues throughout downtown Newburyport. Please see below for the events being held here at the Firehouse.
The Firehouse Center for the Arts hosts a wide variety of live performances throughout the year- from Firehouse Produced theater and professional musicians to comedy nights and local dance troupes, there’s something for everyone. Our intimate Arakelian Theater (191 seats) features excellent acoustics and there’s not a bad seat in the house. If you’re looking for excellent arts and live entertainment, (without fighting Boston traffic), then the Firehouse is the place for you.
