esplanade community day celebration photoThe Esplanade Association is hosting our 4th Annual Community Day! Join us on the Esplanade’s Fiedler Field for a full day of movement, music, food, games, and great partners.

Enjoy a 5K run/walk in the morning followed by a GroundBeat concert in the afternoon. Grab lunch at the Jamaica Mi Hungry food truck and enjoy the music and festivities.

Event Highlights

Start Time: 9:00am

We’re thrilled to announce that the 5K will return to the Esplanade on Saturday, May 20 at 9am! Join up to a thousand of your fellow Esplanade-lovers and run the most popular running route in Greater Boston, kicking off at the iconic Hatch Memorial Shell. Registration Required


- Plenty of equipment and lawn games provided by EA and Knucklebones.
- Fun environmental and educational activities for all ages
- Face painting booth!


We partnered again with BAMS Fest for this year’s GroundBeat Concert to both produce and curate a variety of diverse, inclusive, and entertaining performances at the iconic Hatch Memorial Shell.

BAMS Fest, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that breaks down racial and social barriers to arts, music and culture for communities and artists of color across Greater Boston.

All of the organizations support the Esplanade Association and provide us the opportunity to increase live arts and culture events at the Hatch Memorial Shell. Additional GroundBeat concerts will take place later this summer.

Food trucks and additional vendors will be on hand. We hope you and your family and friends can join us for this program-packed day on the Esplanade!
