Directions to The Center for the Arts

Look for the “Low Low Low” CITGO Gas Station on Route 28, between Routes 130 & Route 149
…we’re right next door.

*** Cotuit Center for the Arts from Falmouth and points WEST ***

CCftA is 2.8 miles from the Mashpee rotary. At the rotary, take Route 28 South (Hyannis, Chatham, Cotuit). Stay on Route 28. Less than a half mile past the junction of Route 130, you’ll see on the left side of Route 28 a bakery (now closed) and a CITGO station with a large “Low Low Low Gas-Diesel” sign. CCftA is the driveway immediately after.

*** CCftA from the EAST ***

Take Route 6 West to Exit 5. Take a left off the off-ramp heading south on Route 149.(note: shortly after passing over Route 6 on Route 149 there will be a fork in the road. Be sure to bear to the right at the fork to stay on Route 149.) Continue on Route 149 straight through a rotary and through your first stop sign until you reach Route 28. Take a right onto route 28. The Cotuit Center for the Arts is 1.5 miles down Route 28 from Route 149 on the right side. You will pass through 1 set of traffic lights then a convenience store/deli-pizza place on your right. You’ll see the current shows’ signboards. Immediately after the centers’ driveway there is a small CITGO gas station. If you pass it, you have gone too far.

*** CCftA from the Sagamore Bridge ***

Take Route 6 toward Provincetown to Exit 2. Take Route 130 South approximately 8 miles until it ends at the junction of Route 28. Make a left on Route 28. In less than a half mile you’ll see on the left a bakery and a CITGO station with a large “Low Low Low Gas-Diesel” sign. CCftA is the driveway immediately after.
