BeanTown Jazz Fest Block Party Sep. 24

Boston's biggest block party will be on Saturday, September 24, from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Columbus Avenue. The party starts in the South end at Massachusetts Avenue and will feature three stages with performances from more than 15 artists and many family activities to participate in. There will also be vendors selling food from all over the world. Carter Playground will be transformed into Berklee Family Park - a hub of activity that will feature inflatables, face painting, and even an "instrument petting zoo" staffed by Berklee professionals!


Seven agencies, including the Home for Little Wanderers, will be under a white tent inside the archway entrance of Carter Playground. The Home for Little Wanderers staff will be at the playground from 12:00 - 3:00.


The acts on the outdoor stage will include Oleta Adams, Rafael Zaldivar, Pablo Ablanedo, Louis Hayes, Marcus Santos and Bloco AfroBrazil, among others. The block party is part of a whole weekend of Jazz - you can read the full schedule at
