On Wednesday, April 13, the City of Boston is hosting a downtown block party to welcome workers, visitors, and residents back to Downtown with free coffee, entertainment, a beer garden, and food trucks.
As the City of Boston continues to recover from the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, this block party is to bolster our local economy by encouraging everyone to support Boston’s Downtown.
The all-day event will consist of food trucks, live music, local performers, street art installations, and a pop-up beer garden. It will take place on Summer and Winter Streets between South Station and Downtown Crossing.
“As we plan for our long-term economic recovery, bringing people back together in person will help our small businesses, restaurants, and arts and culture scene grow. We look forward to highlighting the vibrant community possible with revitalizing our downtown with events, arts, and place-making,” said Mayor Michelle Wu in a press statement. “I am grateful to all of our partners for working to ensure that Downtown remains a vibrant and inclusive destination and encourage everyone to stop by the Boston Blooms Block Party.”
