honk festival 2021 photoHONK! is a rousing socio-political music spectacle which features social activist street bands from all over the world, who come together to share their different approaches in merrily instigating positive changes in their communities.

HONK!: 16th annual festival of activist street bands, w/over 15 locally-based HONK! street bands, joining forces w/local community orgs, in a rousing unified effort to achieve the common goal for all residents::”Health, Hope, …. and HONK!”

HONK! 2021. YES, it is indeed happening this October during Indigenous Peoples Day weekend. YES, definitely mark your calendars. In pen. The plans are already in motion, with HONK! organizers collaborating with local community groups, to allow for this year’s HONK! to convene right on their own neighborhood’s doorsteps.

HONK! 2021 will be held outdoors on Friday-Saturday, rain or shine. In-person, on-site, in many small gathering places within the local area’s decentralized neighborhoods.

This year, HONK!’s intention is to reach communities that have not been able to participate in the past, for example Nubian Square in Roxbury, while also retaining HONK!’s historic connection to Davis Square in Somerville.

For the past 15 years, an October weekend has been the moment when thousands of participants from the Greater Boston area in the USA have enjoyed the HONK! Festival of Activist Street Bands – a raucous celebration of music and community that took Somerville, Massachusetts by storm in 2006.

Since that original HONK!, the idea has caught fire beyond anyone’s wildest expectations. HONK! is now a global phenomenon, with more than 20 HONK! Festivals worldwide and participating bands joining us from all seven continents – yes, even Antarctica.
