Summer on the Emerald Necklace

When the ground thaws and the picnic blankets come out, Boston and Brookline gear up for our signature series of concerts, movies and fitness in the parks! Summer on the Emerald Necklace is a season-long celebration of our historic parks. It’s our favorite part of summer.

Summer on the Emerald Necklace 2018

Summer on the Emerald Necklace returns in 2018 with a two-month-long lineup of concerts, yoga, and movies- the perfect way to celebrate the season! Six Sunday evening concerts, ranging from opera to jazz to classical music, will take place at Allerton Overlook and Pinebank Promontory this July and August.

After a popular showing last year, we’re excited to continue our new summer tradition: a movie night in the Back Bay Fens! Moviegoers will have the chance to choose this year’s movie selection via online poll. Check our Facebook page to cast your vote soon- stay tuned!
