The Barrington Cultural Commission's goal is to promote Barrington as a cultural hub. We're bringing the arts alive in the Village of Barrington in an effort to grow our community creatively and bring attention to our artists and highlight our merchants. The Barrington Cultural Commission also works closely with Barrington’s White House to plan numerous events at this beautiful cultural arts center, with ongoing performances and events spanning classical string trios, intimate theater productions, guest lectures, and more. The Cultural Commission meets the second Wednesday of each month in the Village Hall at 12:00 noon.
The Cultural Commission hosts numerous events throughout the year including:
The Barrington Town-Warming
Oscar Shorts Film Festival
Concerts in the Metra Lot
Barrington Independent Short Film Festival
Poetry Reading/Storytelling Events
Barrington Art Festival
Rising Stars Vocal Competition
Paint the Town Barrington! Plein Air Event
3rd Thursdays Art Night Out at Barrington’s White House
