Weekend Guide: Festivals, Farms, Glow Parties

Saturday, Sept. 15

dbar in Dorchester is getting you glowing.  Think neon lights, 80’s neon clothing (or you can go more modern, and highlighter paint all lit up by an ultraviolet blacklight. This event is for 21+ and goes from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Saturday, Sept. 15 & Sunday, Sept. 16

This weekend is Festival at the Farm.  A great way to enjoy being outside surrounded by music, good food, and chill vibes.  Although it’s not a a kids’ festival, this is one of the most family-friendly festivals we have enjoyed together. Festival at the Farm brings all ages together for live music, local food and drink, backyard games, an on-site farmers market featuring local farmers, non-profits and inspired craft vendors.

There is a children’s area which includes a special kids’ concert each day.  The family can have just as much fun in any of the festival areas though. Kids concerts include The Kids Really Rock All-Star Jam which will feature Karen K. and the Jitterbugs alongside a who’s who of New England Kids musical artists including Alphabet Rockers and Alastair Moock & Friends.  As for the other line-up everyone can enjoy two stages of nationally-known artists alongside some of Boston’s best local acts including: Amos Lee, Dawes, Trampled by Turtles, Martin Sexton, Joseph, The Ghost of Paul Revere, Mandolin Orange, Amy Helm, The Wild Reeds, The Suitcase Junket, Caitlyn Smith, Update Rubdown, Will Dailey, Jesse Dee, The Silks, and Ali McGuirk.

Sunday, Sept. 16th

Boston Local Food festival is happening on the Rose Kennedy Greenway.  Sample local foods, see cooking demonstrations, meet some of our fabulous local chefs.  If you are new to the area or from here born and raised, you can see, taste and do something new while celebrating local food.
