'Tis the season for the 6th annual SoWa Winter Festival, voted "Best of Boston."
Creative space for vivid imaginations. Welcome to SoWa Boston. An inspired neighborhood where we invite you to live, work, and play.
Our largest event of the year is taking place across three festival locations and 10 days of winter wonderland magic, December 3-12, 2021. We're back, bigger and better than ever. You're not going to want to miss Boston's best Winter Festival.
SOWA POWER STATION
540 Harrison Avenue (*indoors - masks required)
Enter through a fresh pine tree forest, where you will find 105 local art & food vendors for the ultimate artisan shopping experience.
See a tree you want to take home? Pay for it on the spot (we'll tag it) and pick it up at the end of the festival, fully lit, stand included.
Nosh on grab-and-go French inspired cuisine like savory/sweet crepes and hearty stews at the Brasserie Cafe Counter.
Sip winter cocktails in our eclectic Artist Loft Lounge, located on the swanky mezzanine level of the Power Station. Pure designer bliss.
Tucked away in the Artist Loft Lounge is the Holiday Portrait Studio. Book your private session with a local photographer to create a lasting memory. ***Ticketed separately ($100/30min session, up to 7 per party).

Have you always wanted to learn how to paint, take fine art photos, design your own jewelry, etc? Sit at the Artist Loft desk to pen your Creative Christmas Wish - two lucky winners will have their SoWa specific wishes granted during the festival!
Indoor/Outdoor snowflake projection mapping on the façade and ceiling of the newly renovated, historic Power Station is icing on the experience cake and absolute eye candy.
OUTDOOR WINTER WONDERLAND (*heated tent for beer garden seating)
500 Harrison Avenue
Journey from the Power Station to our outdoor food & drink lot, guided by a Trail of Light.
Grab a bite from some of Boston's best food trucks.
Wash it down with a beer from the Jack's Abby Beer Garden.
Cozy up around a fire pit (*first come first serve, weather permitting).
ARTIST STUDIOS, DESIGN SHOWROOMS, GALLERIES, RETAIL SHOPS & VINTAGE MARKET (*indoor/outdoor)
450/460 Harrison Avenue
Stroll down Thayer Street, a pedestrian only walkway, lined with lights and holiday window displays. Pop in and out of studios, showrooms, galleries and shops on either side of the street.
Warm your bones at the hot chocolate hut, then visit the wine and candy trucks for an extra treat.
Not done yet? Neither are we! Our Co-Create Lab along Thayer St will offer a selection of experimental, collaborative, and just plain fun pop-up experiences.
Follow us on social media @sowaboston, where new activations and artisan giveaways will be announced in the coming weeks.
