Looking for plans for the weekend? You’ve come to the right place. It’s a busy one here in Boston, and there’s no shortages of things to do if you’re looking for them! The weather will be around 70-80 degrees all throughout the weekend – with a bit of rain on Saturday – so enjoy the long weekend and get out into the city!
Memorial Day is this Monday, and what better way to honor those who have served our country than by taking a moment to walk through the Flag Garden at Boston Common? Over 37,000 flags have been planted by the Massachusetts Military Heroes to represent every brave Massachusetts service member who gave his or her life defending our country since the Revolutionary War. You can also visit the flag garden at Seaport’s Fallen Heroes Memorial this weekend.
This weekend is jam-packed with Red Sox games—and tickets are still available! They have home games against the Orioles on Friday night at 7:10pm, a double header on Saturday with games at 12:10 and 6:10pm, a 1:35pm afternoon game on Sunday, and then a 7:10pm game on Memorial Day. Cheer on the home team and get some sunshine, hot dogs, and great vibes!
That’s right – Boston’s biggest music festival is finally back this weekend! With multiple stages, a Ferris wheel, and crowds upwards of 40,000 people in years past, it’s safe to say this will be a festival for the ages. Taking place at the Harvard Athletic Complex, day tickets will run you $145. But the lineup is truly iconic: we’re talking Nine Inch Nails, The Strokes, Metallica, Glass Animals, Haim, Modest Mouse, Weezer, and much more!
If smaller crowds and chill music is more your vibe than the action-packed Boston Calling, this is the place for you! Hosted at MASS MoCA, the largest museum of contemporary art in the country, this festival is hosted by Wilco in a stunning part of the Berkshire Mountains. Catch performances by Japanese Breakfast, Wilco, Sylvan Esso, and many more!
Just in time for warm weather, Boston’s favorite outdoor interactive space is open for the season this weekend. The first of its kind in Boston, Lawn on D is a 2.7-acre outdoor experimental event landscape with glow-in-the-dark swings, food and drinks, and live entertainment. It’s a great spot to chill out on a sunny day!
Looking to get in shape this summer? We have the perfect activities for you! Seaport is bringing back their free outdoor workout series, Seaport Sweat, starting this may. Back for its seventh season, the community-driven series offers nearly 200 fitness classes. Read more about their programming here.
It’s always a pleasure to catch some live music in the city! And there’s plenty of spots to choose from this weekend at excellent bars and venues. Some of our favorites include The Burren and The Druid – two of our favorite Irish pubs in the city. The Beehive will be hosting jazz performances all weekend long as well.
When you’re looking for a hangout spot that’s a bit more casual than a rooftop bar, head to a local beer garden to soak up the sun rays. Chill out with friends and a cold beer in hand at one of these 10 awesome beer gardens in Boston.
