Vision Louisville's Summer Cultural Pass
For students, summer break is still new and exciting. Students are sleeping in, hanging out with friends, and taking it easy. The arrival of summer break is highly anticipated, but will quickly become mundane. The thrill of summer will wear off at some point, and soon turn into complaints of students being bored and not having anything to do. Vision Louisville has introduced the Cultural Pass Challenge, which will help you solve those cries of boredom!
The Cultural Pass for Children was born out of a suggestion that was submitted through Mayor Fischer’s Vision Louisville Initiative. The goal is to engage children and youth around Jefferson County to engage in the rich culture that can be found right here in our own community. Summertime is the perfect opportunity for students who are on break to check out some of the great local destinations found right here in Louisville.
The process is pretty simple. To be eligible, you must be a resident of Jefferson County. Unfortunately the pass is not available for surrounding counties. You can obtain a cultural pass from any Louisville Free Public Library branch. You will need to verify that you are a resident of Jefferson County. Click here to locate a library branch near you.
You can use the pass to enter each participating venue once between June 9th and August 13th. The cultural pass is valid for children birth through college. One adult is admitted for free with a child sixteen and under. College aged students using a cultural pass will need to provide a valid college id with their pass. Anyone participating is encouraged to visit at least eight participating destinations. Anyone who receives eight stamps on their pass will be eligible for prize drawings at the end of the summer. The grand prize is a family package of tickets to Disney’s The Lion King, a part of the Kentucky Center’s Broadway series this coming season. First Prize will be access to Mayor Fischer’s suite at Louisville Slugger Field for a future home game.
A variety of local institutions are participating in the Cultural Pass. Those participating include the American Printing House for the Blind Museum, Bernheim Arboretum, Carnegie Center for Art & History, Crane House – Asia Institute, the Filson Historical Society and the Historic Locust Grove. The Kentucky Derby Museum, Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft, the Kentucky Science Center, Kentucky Shakespeare, Louisville Youth Choir, Stage One Family Theatre and Yew Dell Gardens will also all be participating.
