New Installations Bring the Best Smells, Sights, Snacks and Sips of Autumn

Boston’s favorite fall hangout is back! The Patios presented by Berkshire Bank is embracing the best season of the year and invites the public enjoy all the ‘Fall Feels’ starting today through the close of the season on Saturday, October 12. Bostonians and leaf peepers alike can enjoy the best sights, snacks, sips (and smells!) of the season at this urban oasis.

‘Fall Feels’ at The Patios include:

SMELLS: Need a quick Fall fix? Visit The Patios, the first outdoor, open-air location of its kind that features a lightly-scented breeze of pumpkin spice to make all things nice.

SIGHTS: The Patios will be stocked with pumpkins, mums, cornstalks and hay bales to create the perfect backdrop for that #SweaterWeather Instagram you’ve been dreaming about posting since the last heatwave.

SNACKS: Pop-up vendor, Bittersweet Homestead, based out of Westminster, MA, will highlight the flavors of Fall by adding apple cider donuts, pumpkin donuts, hot and cold apple cider and a hot caramel apple sipper to the menu.

SIPS: Wachusett Brewing Company will turn its taps to match the season. Now pouring: Boo Yeah! Pumpkin and Octoberfest!

The Patios is part of Boston Seasons presented by Berkshire Bank, a three-year plan created by Boston Garden Development Corp. and the City of Boston Property Management Department to revitalize the existing plaza at City Hall and create a vibrant welcome public space for all. The Patios debuted on May 6 and has been successfully operating on Faneuil Hall overlook area of City Hall Plaza. It will close for the season on October 12.


ABOUT THE PATIOS
The Patios debuted in May 2018 as a highly successful placemaking initiative and, with the help of Wachusett Brewing Company, a very popular foray into the outdoor beer garden trend. Through combined efforts between City of Boston Property Management, BRM production Management, Citywide Contracting and Boston artist Jeff Smith, the underutilized southeastern corner overlooking Faneuil Hall has been transformed into a daily destination for locals, tourists and commuters alike. The Patios open this season with a slightly extended footprint, making way for the return of fan favorites like the Wachusett Brew Yard, Wag Wednesdays and putt-putt mini-golf, and some new activations that are sure to get Bostonians pumped for patio season.

The Patios is a part of ‘Boston Seasons presented by Berkshire Bank’, a three-year plan created by Boston Garden Development Corp. and the City of Boston Property Management Department to revitalize the existing plaza at City Hall and create a vibrant welcome public space for all. Located in the center of the City and just steps from the MBTA’s Orange and Green lines, The Patios serve as urban oasis for residents, commuters, and visitors offering daily programming from picnics, pints, putt-putt and more. ‘The Patios’ will officially open on May 2.


‘Boston Seasons presented by Berkshire Bank’ is a three-year activation plan created by Boston Garden Development Corp and the City of Boston Property Management Department to revitalize the existing plaza at City Hall and create a vibrant welcome public space for all. Boston Garden Development Corp, a subsidiary of Delaware North is overseeing the efforts as the City’s selected vendor to enhance City Hall Plaza.
