The annual weekend Medieval fairs begin in September and last through to the end of October.
Beer Festivals Blacksmiths Festivals, the Buy American Festival, Greek Food Fairs, Film and Comedy Fests and Food &Wine events are all on Boston’s September agenda.
Oh! Don’t forget the Marshmallow Festival on the 22nd September. It “celebrates marshmallow cream with games (Sticky Musical Chairs and Fluff Jousting), cooking and eating competitions, a kids’ area, and live music at Union Square in Somerville, where Fluff was invented in 1917.: Worth a visit, we’re sure!
There’s a Welcome Autumn Festival on September 23, 2018, when you are invited to celebrate the first day of Fall.
