Hello MIT Student Orgs!
We have an update from our friends over in the Campus Activities Complex (CAC) that the City of Cambridge has upped the price of one-day Entertainment Licenses. Instead of $40, they now cost $50. Please bear this in mind as you budget and prepare for your events.
Why would you need an entertainment license? Please keep these criteria in mind:
Massachusetts defines entertainment as “theatrical exhibitions, public shows, public amusements and exhibitions of every description.” A license should be obtained if an event: “will have entertainment rather than academic learning as its main purpose” AND “will include an admission fee/mandatory donation OR the serving of alcohol.”
So, MIT student orgs, if you are having an entertainment based event, the price is now higher for a Cambridge license. But, don’t let that deter from planning great and unique events for the MIT community.
