Fenway Civic Association is pleased to announce Sunset Concerts at Symphony Park, Monday September 28th – Friday October 2nd, featuring Berklee musicians.
Join us at 5:30 pm, weather permitting, Monday through Friday for short musical performances! Bring a chair and a friend. All concerts are free and open to the public.
Symphony Park is located at the corner of Edgerly Road and Norway Streets in the East Fenway.
Thanks to Berklee College of Music, the Boston Parks and Recreation Department, the Friends of Symphony Park, and the Mission Hill Fenway Neighborhood Trust for making these concerts possible.

Students, mentors and professors from Curry College’s First-Year Honors program returned to the Back Bay Fens on September 19th to rake, week, prune and clean the parks.

Led by Curry College Professor Peter Hainer, The Trustees of Reservations volunteer Bill Stanton, and FCA board members, students engaged in three project areas that improved the quality of parkland for residents and visitors. Our thanks to these dedicated students, their teachers, and the TTOR! Read Curry College’s Facebook post here.

Saturday, September 12th (rain or shine)
11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Central Meadow, Fenway Victory Gardens
Please join the Fenway Garden Society for an afternoon of BBQ fare (burgers, hotdogs, veggie burgers, local corn, salads, desserts, etc.), lawn games, kid games and crafts, a raffle drawing, live music, and the yearly White Elephant Table.  There will also be a flower arrangement contest from flowers grown in the Fenway Victory Gardens.  The event is free, but each $5 donation will come with a raffle ticket!

The twice-rained-out Summer Sunset Concert at Ramler Park has been rescheduled for Monday, Aug 24th at 6:30 PM. With eight musicians and equipment to coordinate, re-scheduling an outdoor concert is challenging. Hopefully the weather will cooperate this time.

A beautiful evening of music is planned with vocalists Maria Jane and Gabe and their top musicians bidding a nostalgic good-bye to summer in “Love Songs – Around the Block and Around the World”.

We hope to see you — and for good weather!

Dear FCA Members and Friends,

We are sorry to relay that the Ramler Park “Love Around the World” Summer Sunset concert rescheduled for Tuesday, Aug 11 is cancelled again due to the forecast of severe weather. It will be rescheduled for later in the summer.  We will announce the new date as soon as we know.

Because of the rain that is predicted during tonight’s concert time, the Swingin in Fenway concert will be postponed to the “rain date” – which is next Wednesday, July 22 at 6:30 PM. We hope to see everyone at Ramler Park next week!
