Unique Events on the Greenway

We have a number of annual or semi-annual events that utilize the Greenway.  These events are organized by separate organizations, often non-profits or other businesses and the Greenway Conservancy works to plan, permit and run them serving as the host.

We are currently working to build this list and it will grow and change, but here are the events that we are expecting to host on the Greenway in 2014:

Greenway Gala.  Tuesday, May 13.  (This is our annual signature fundraiser)

Race Amity Day. Sunday, June 8.

Figment Boston Festival.  Saturday, July 26 and Sunday, July 27.

Boston Local Food Festival. Sunday, September 14.
