Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival 2021

Join us this summer for Festival 2021! With intimate, distanced ticketed performances on our outdoor stage, onsite and online talks, classes, a new exhibit, community events, traveling performances, and more, this will be our first multi-platform festival.


The beautiful grounds of Jacob’s Pillow—the traditional lands of the Agawam, the Nipmuc, the Pocumtuc, and the Mohican—offers a magnificent natural stage for dance. Onsite events are held June 30 – August 29, with online events streaming through September 23.
