Summer on Dewey Presented by Citizens Bank

Earlier this July, the Greenway Conservancy announced Summer on Dewey Presented by Citizens Bank, a new partnership that will bring greater awareness to Dewey Square’s vibrancy, including our cider garden, food trucks, farmers market, public art, and beautiful gardens.

Dewey Square is a place for the community to gather, play, and unwind. Tens of thousands of pedestrians’, neighbors’, and visitors’ #SummerOnDewey will include all that Dewey Square has to offer.

Explore unique cuisines from up to 10 diverse lunch options every weekday from The Greenway’s nationally acclaimed Mobile Eats Program and find local foods at The Boston Public Market seasonal farmers market with more than a dozen proprietors on Tuesdays and Thursdays. From our new Downeast Back Porch on The Greenway, open five days/week, serving craft cider, rotating Massachusetts beers, and wine to the Boston Calling Block Party with music, beer, wine, and lawn games every Thursday, there’s always something new to try.

Enjoy artist Shara Hughes’ colorful new mural, Carving Out Fresh Options, on The Greenway Wall. Stay for a moment, and enjoy beautiful, organically maintained horticulture, lawn, and demonstration garden, as well as varied seating including communal tables and iconic red Adirondack chairs.

Summer on Dewey Presented by Citizens Bank celebrated its kick-off on July 11 and will run through September 30. Visitors are encouraged to snap selfies with a large logo temporarily painted on the plaza. For the first time, light pole banners ring the plaza, reinforcing the experience for passers-by.

Citizens will be holding promotions on select Wednesdays throughout the summer on Dewey Square Plaza, where they will be distributing Summer on Dewey wallet cards offering discounts to a variety of our Mobile Eats Program Food Trucks as well as highlight the many activities that Dewey Square has to offer. Stop by every Wednesday in August and on September 12 and 26 to catch Citizens in action on Dewey Square!
