Boston Donut Fest: July 28
If you’re a huge donut lover, then you need to attend the Boston Donut Fest on July 28. Besides a wide assortment of donuts, there will also be coffee, live music, and plenty of games for kids! All children under eight get in free, making this a perfect low-cost way to spend an afternoon with the family enjoying the summer weather (and donuts, of course).
Boston Seafood Festival: August 4
On August 4, the Boston Fisheries Foundation will host its annual Boston Seafood Festival on the Historic Boston Fish Pier. In attendance will be some of the city’s top chefs, seafood vendors serving up delicious specials, a Harpoon beer garden, and live entertainers. If you’re feeling competitive, join the Battle of the Shuckers to see who’s the best oyster shucker out there. The best part of the festival, however, is knowing that you’re supporting one of the oldest and most important industries in New England: fishing!
