This is a wonderful weekend of Culture Vulture in Boston. Here are two key picks:
Beantown Jazz Festival
The Berklee Beantown Jazz Festival is Boston’s biggest block party—a free, annual outdoor concert open to the public that has delighted hundreds of thousands of music lovers over the years with its host of jazz, Latin, blues, funk, and groove performances, along with an array of food vendors and free activities for kids.
This year’s festival, themed “Jazz: The Voice of the People,” will take place from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 26, 2015 at Columbus Avenue between Massachusetts Avenue and Burke Street. Stretching across six blocks in Boston’s historic South End, the festival offers world-class music on three stages, phenomenal food and drink, arts, crafts, and unique gifts. The Natixis Family Park offers facepainting, inflatables, cotton candy, KidsJam, an instrument petting zoo, and more.
