Bangor Humanities Day

Every year we take a break from the winter chill to celebrate the humanities with the Bangor community. In collaboration with area businesses, museums, and public spaces, as well as local collectives and experts, we host a day of diverse and fun events that highlight the art, music, history, performing arts, literature and research communities locally. The Center has sponsored Bangor Humanities Day, formally Downtown Bangor Public Humanities Day, since 2012..
