Mayor Martin J. Walsh and the City of Boston, along with Boston Garden Development Corp., announced that Boston’s highly-acclaimed seasonal activation, The Patios presented by Berkshire Bank, will return to City Hall Plaza on Thursday, May 2 and will officially open to the public at 5:00 p.m.
“We’re excited that this year Boston City Hall Plaza will again be transformed into The Patios as we celebrate warm weather in Boston,”
said Mayor Martin J. Walsh. “I look forward to the many family-friendly events and activations that will happen on the Plaza this summer, and welcome all to take part in The Patios.”
The Patios presented by Berkshire Bank is proud to introduce Sunday Grilling this season. Each Sunday, guests will have access to four electric grills (available free of charge) on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors are invited to bring along coolers with their own grilling favorites and accouterments, or they can purchase the basics like hot dogs and hamburgers on site from local vendor, Bittersweet Homestead.
BEER… AND MARGARITAS!
Wachusett Brewing Company, celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, is proud to return to the plaza with its iconic Airstream trailer to offer pints on The Patios, pouring Monday-Thursday beginning at 4:00 p.m., and 12:00 p.m. Friday-Sunday. New this season, Wachusett’s Scratch Cocktails Margarita, a refreshing, tangy, and tart creation perfect for patios season.
LOCALLY SOURCED FOOD OPTIONS.
Bittersweet Homestead, based out of Westminster, MA, will be welcomed back with a larger pop-up location at the front entrance of The Patios and will now operate seven days a week. Additionally, Boston Seasons presented by Berkshire Bank is excited to share the arrival of the all-new Boston Public Market at City Hall. This local farmer’s market will operate on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. from May 21 through November 19.
The Patios will now be fully equipped for bringing your office outdoors. Each of the nine, custom furnished patios will be outfitted with multiple power outlets. The wi-fi networks have been completely upgraded to support team meetings or simply provide an ‘out-of-office’ sanctuary for individuals looking to add a breath of fresh air to their work week.
EVENING FOOD TRUCK PROGRAM.
This season, in partnership with the City of Boston’s office of economic development small business unit, The Patios has extended the food truck program for the post-work crowd. This addition adds a whole new schedule of food trucks from Monday through Friday, 5:00-8:00 p.m.
Complementing the new daily programming will be one of last year’s most popular activations, ‘Wag Wednesdays’, taking place every Wednesday from 12:00-2:00 p.m. each week. Shultz’s Guest House, a dog rescue based out of Dedham, MA, will bring a variety of puppies to meet and play with visitors and connect them with information on fostering and adoption. In 2018, ‘Wag Wednesdays’ at The Patios resulted in more than 200 applications and nearly 30 pups being placed with their forever families. Other family-friendly activities, such as putt-putt mini-golf holes, will once again be free for public use seven days a week. Additional activities will be added throughout the season as well.
OPENING DATE: Thursday, May 2
