Events Calendar

The Esplanade Association hosts a variety of special events throughout the year, from our Esplanade 5k Presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, to our free outdoor fitness programming throughout the year, to our elegant Moondance Gala on the banks of the Charles River. These events bring community members together who want to support park improvements while celebrating everything they love about the Esplanade. See below for what’s coming up in the next few months!

This calendar is updated frequently so check back often. You can also sign up for our newsletter to make sure you’re in the know about what’s happening in the park!

Frost Fit Winter Series

During these long, cold Boston winters, it may be tempting to freeze those exercise routines and hibernate indoors until spring appears. With proper gear and a positive mindset, you can experience the unique beauty of the Esplanade while starting the new year with healthy habits.

Warm up, score cool swag, and get your blood pumping at the Frost Fit Winter Series Presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts.

Learn more about the series and sign up for the Saturday Workouts Hosted by the November Project!

Free Guided Tours on the Esplanade

Did you know that 150 years ago, the Charles River ran through what is now Back Bay? Or that you can still see bald eagles on the Esplanade?

If not, come learn about the history, wildlife, trees, and gardens that make the Esplanade Boston’s most iconic park. From February through December, the Esplanade Association is excited to offer free guided walking tours on the Esplanade to share the park’s amazing stories, plants, and wildlife. Guided walking tours will last about an hour-and-a-half and cover roughly a mile of the Esplanade and over 150 years of history! Learn more.
