This Weekend’s Haute Happenings In Boston

From a seafood festival at the Boston Fish Pier to a green festival on Boston City Hall Plaza and James Taylor playing to a sold-out crowd at Fenway Park with Bonnie Raitt, this weekend was jam packed with things to do in Boston. Here’s a look back at some of the weekend’s hautest happenings in Boston.

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum hosted its final family friendly Neighborhood Night. The grand summer finale featured live music, dance performances, and hands-on art-making complete with local artists along with horticulture projects and themed gallery explorations with museum staff and educators.

James Taylor was with Bonnie Raitt this weekend jamming to a sold-out crowd at Fenway Park. Taylor performed all of his fan-favorite songs like “Fire and Rain” and “Sweet Baby James” while Raitt took the stage with her country classics. They wrapped up the show together on stage singing “Thing Called Love.”

One thing about Bostonians is true – we all love our seafood. On Sunday, Boston Fisheries Foundation hosted the sixth Annual Boston Seafood Festival on the Boston Fish Pier. Here, guests could enjoy seafood tastings and clambakes while watching chef demos, participating in educational events, and watching a fish cutting contest. From lobsters to oysters and everything in between, we certainly had our fair share of seafood dishes to enjoy.

If you were looking to do a little tree hugging this weekend, the tenth annual Boston GreenFest featured a full weekend of environmental and multicultural events on three live stages that included dance, fashion, fitness, music, film screenings and panel discussions. The three-day festival at Boston City Hall Plaza also featured a local food emporium, sustainably crafted wine and beer and fun activities for the kids.
