The Town of Barnstable recognizes arts and culture as key economic drivers that contribute to the vibrancy of the area and provide an important backdrop and enriching experiences year round for residents and visitors. Each of the seven villages features art, culture and historic gems, all with seaside charm. Two of the villages, Hyannis and Barnstable Village have state designated cultural districts. The Hyannis HyArts Cultural District, the first state designated cultural district on Cape Cod, and the Barnstable Village Cultural District focus the town and community partners on the common goals to attract artists, cultural and creative enterprises; encourage business and job retention and creation; further establish the district as a tourist destination; preserve and reuse historic buildings; enhance property values; and foster local cultural development.
