Welcome to Boston Seasons, presented by the City of Boston and community partner Berkshire Bank.  With one of the busiest outdoor schedules in Boston, City Hall Plaza aims to provide Boston residents, commuters and visitors with a wide range of events, including free health and wellness activities, concerts, festivals and cultural gatherings.

In addition to many popular annual summer events, such as Scooper Bowl, Boston TechJam, GreenFest and lively cultural festivals, this summer’s slate will also feature some exciting new offerings such as the Boston Pizza Festival, as well as a summer-long weekly series of live lunchtime music, and free fitness activities.

Boston residents, commuters and tourists are encouraged to visit regularly for the latest and ever-changing schedule of new events and activities.


The City of Boston will be providing free lunches for youth 18 and under on City Hall Plaza, every weekday this Summer from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.  No registration or ID required. Grab a meal and enjoy it on the Lawn at a picnic table or while playing a game. Not near City Hall? Check out this map of other breakfast and lunch sites throughout Boston.

On Tuesday afternoons this June through August, live music will fill the lunchtime air on City Hall Plaza.  The ‘Tuesday Tunes’ series will showcase a variety of sounds from local musicians from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. each Tuesday at the Berkshire Bank Community Pavilion, near the official City Hall flagpole.  Check the events calendar for specific artists as they are confirmed.

In addition to Mayor Walsh’s 2nd Annual Blue Cross Blue Shield Social Fitness Festival to be held on the plaza on Sat., Sept 16, the city and Berkshire Bank will host a late summer series of ‘Fit Fridays’ designed to get Bostonians active and healthy.  The free fitness activities are expected to include yoga, high intensity interval training sessions, dance lessons, and more.  Visit the official event calendar regularly for the most current list of activities as they are announced.

Earlier this Spring, Berkshire Bank brought renewed energy to City Hall Plaza with the return of the city’s iconic and oft-photographed Boston sign which made its debut during the success of Boston Winter.  The plaza’s popular oversized Adirondack Chair has also returned to its new home near the daily Food Trucks, surrounded by additional seating areas throughout the updated space.
