Awards & Accolades

Throughout the years, Passim has received numerous awards and accolades. One of the ones we're most proud of is when a Special Commission of Massachusetts' government included Club Passim on its  its comprehensive list of the 1,000 greatest places in the Commonwealth. The list, which was signed into law by Governor Deval Patrick, is designed to identify and recognize the 1,000 most truly special places in order to celebrate pride in our history and culture, increase knowledge of our natural surroundings, and encourage regional and international tourism. See below for some of the other recognition Passim has received.
