The 5th Boston Local Food Festival will be held on The Rose Kennedy Greenway again this year. The Festival spans just over 3 blocks of the Rose Kennedy Greenway, starting at State Street and Atlantic Ave, and continuing down the greenway just past High Street and Atlantic Ave. It is just a short walk from Downtown Boston, and is conveniently located near South Station, Faneuil Hall, and The Aquarium.
The festival will take place in the Wharf District and American Heritage parks. We strongly encourage festival-goers to use alternative transportation, such as public transportation, walking, biking, or by taking a water taxi, to attend the event, instead of driving.
