Neighborhood Night: Sounds of Summer

Thursday, July 13, 5:00 PM

Free from 5 pm to 9 pm

Everyone’s invited to the Gardner for three FREE summer evenings of art, music, and family fun – especially our neighbors from the Fenway, Roxbury, Mission Hill, Jamaica Plain, and Dorchester.

Head to the Gardner during Neighborhood Nights for art-making in the Studio, fun gallery activities, and musical performances in the Gardens and Palace. Neighborhood Night - Sounds of Summer is co-produced with our neighbors at Epicenter Community celebrating themes of liberation and joy. Join yogi Marlene Boyette for family-friendly movement in Calderwood Hall, storyteller Valerie Stephens in the Living Room, bassist Jeff Jones in the Courtyard, and get your hands in the dirt planting your seeds of intention. The Gardner partners with local culture makers, neighborhood organizations, and artists to offer fun and interactive activities for you and your family.

Can't make it July 13? Neighborhood Nights also happen July 27 and August 10.
