Developed through Vision Louisville, the Cultural Pass is an innovative initiative to promote art and culture and improve summer learning in our community. Nearly 240,000 passes have been issued since its inception in 2014.
Cultural Pass is a partnership of Louisville Metro Government, Arts & Culture Alliance, Fund for the Arts, Louisville Free Public Library and regional libraries in the Greater Louisville area, and the participating arts and culture venues.
The objectives of the Cultural Pass are:
- Impact summer learning loss by creating a learning experience through programming, activities, and education.
- Establish a life-long relationship between Louisville’s children and the art and cultural institutions.
- Work to break down barriers that prohibit children from accessing the city’s art and cultural venues.

Cultural Pass offers families in Greater Louisville with children ages 0-21 access to participate in arts and cultural activities provided by 57 venues, free of charge, from June 1 through September 4, 2022. You can pick up your passport starting on June 1.
The Cultural Pass is designed to inspire, explore, and discover new experiences. This year’s Cultural Pass will offer both in-person and virtual opportunities so that every family can participate in a way that works for them!
