Update on Cambridge Entertainment Licenses

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.  

And remember…
