5 Very Cool Spring Events To Bookmark!

Sam and I LOVE a good event. In fact, we're planning to cram ourselves, our great dane dog, and any future family members into a tiny apartment right here in Camberville even if it means spending every penny we have on housing so we can always live near the city. And why do we torture ourselves with no space? Because of the INCREDIBLE events happening all the time nearby us and within walking distance (woo!)

So we’ve chosen the 5 Boston Spring Events to recommend to you — events that are worth driving here for. Hope to see you at one of these soon, and of course on an upcoming food tour.



Saturday, May 12th

Created originallly in 2011 by the Somerville Arts Council, the Porchfest concept has expanded to other cities, but Somerville will always be the first! A decentralized music festival, Porchfest takes the idea of hearing a neighbor strumming guitar on their porch and multiplies it. Festival goers use a map to walk porch to porch throughout the day, and the entire community is humming.

Taza Chocolate Cinco De Mayo Block Party

Saturday, May 5th

Get ready to dance, eat, and enjoy the sunshine with friends at Taza’s annual block party. Featuring DJTrizlam, delicious local drinks from Slumbrew and Bantam Cider, and yummy foods from Sheherazad Truck, Honeycomb Creamery, and others. And of course a chance to sample Taza seasonal surprises. We cannot wait!

Bow Market Behind-the-Scenes Hard Hat Tour

Saturday, April 21st

We can’t wait to take a sneak peek of the Bow Market, a neighborhood food hall and marketplace that is coming soon to Union Square in Somerville. While the Opening Day might not be for a few more weeks, the Bow Market is offering a free 15-20 minute tour with drinks and snacks. RSVP today.


Wake Up The Earth Festival

Saturday, May 5th

Spontaneous Celebration’s infamous annual festival attracts over 10,000 people to the event, and we love being part of it! Started back in 1979 when a group of activists tried to stop the I-95 highway expansion into JP, the festival is an inspiring collaboration. There are several stages and over 50 craft, non-profit, and food vendors with thousands of people marching. If you want to see JP at its best, check out this unique community event!



Sunday, May 6th

We are proud members of the Harvard Square Business Association (HSBA) which is hosting the 35th Annual MayFair. This year, they will be celebrating the sounds of Mexico as well as Mexican culture and heritage. You can’t miss the mariachi music on the main stage in front of the Out of Town News Kiosk. There are also 5 beer gardens, international food vendors, and lots of fun.
