The Fenway Fridays 3.0

For the third year in a row, The Fenway Fridays are back!  

We had to get extra creative this year, of course. We’re nixing the crowds and the parties. We’re encouraging social distancing. We’re putting safety first. 

And we’re making fun a very close second.

Because The Fenway Fridays have always been about celebrating what makes this neighborhood special, that’s exactly what we’re doing.

Picnic in The Fenway

Instead of a single culinary experience, we’re bringing you seven. 

Each Friday, from August 28th through October 9th, a different neighborhood restaurant will carefully curate and sell a limited number of Fenway Picnic Boxes.

You can order one box, a couple of key favorites or – if you’re like us and simply can’t choose – all seven boxes. 

When the day arrives, grab your grub, a buddy, and a (socially distant) spot in a local park for the ultimate picnic experience. 

Don’t just toss your box aside when the meal is over, either. Each week, we will hide a golden ticket in one picnic – good for a freebie from a local shop
