Welcome to

Happening in Brockton

A group of residents of the City of Brockton, MA have started meeting together regularly to gather and promote events in our community that will make for a better Brockton under the name, Cultural Affairs & Tourism Brockton. It is an ad hoc committee where anyone can come and share about their events and gather assistance from veteran event planners.

This site we hope will be a resource of known events that will be happening in Brockton. We know we cannot be at all of them but it is our desire that we should be there to support each other and enhance the quality of life in Brockton, MA.

As time allows we will better organize the published events on this site, but for now they will be added as they come in to us. To have your event added, please email the details to Richard Reid (rdrconsult@gmail.com ) with the text you want on the site and any graphics.
