The Best Labor Day Events in Boston 2015

Posted On: 08/28/2015

Labor Day is different every year, but as always there are hundreds of great things to do in Boston. Labor Day comes a little later this year (Monday, September 7th), but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop! Boston offers firework shows, cruises, festivals, ball games, and more.

Are you in the mood for a festival this Labor Day? Check out the Boston Arts Festival happening September 4 & 5 at Columbus Waterfront Park. This is a family friendly free festival with juried art exhibitions, live music, and great food. There’s also Mass Brewers Fest on September 4th at the Seaport World Trade Center, where you can taste over 100 different beers from 30 different breweries. Not for the kids!

Or is a cruise more your style? There are several harbor cruises available throughout the weekend. Boston’s Odyssey features specials for a Labor Day champagne brunch and starlight cruises. And if you’re at the harbor, be sure not to miss the “Battle of the Barges” fireworks and music show.  These battling barges can be seen from Long Warf in the North End, the Fan Pier/Seaport, the Downtown Waterfront, and Piers Park in East Boston.

Lastly, if you’re looking for a ballgame, the Red Sox will be in town and playing all weekend long. You can catch Phillies games on Friday through Sunday, and the Red Sox will be playing the Blue Jays on Labor Day.

Can’t decide what to do, well, you can even try to catch it all! Though you may need help getting there. Transportation options are available to help make this Labor Day the best one ever.
