Summer Celebration at Brewer Plaza!

Brewer Fountain Plaza
Summer arrived on Boston Common last Thursday when the Friends of the Public Garden hosted a Summer Celebration on Brewer Plaza, serving up free food, festive live music, and lots of fun. Bon Me cooked up sandwiches for the hungry crowd, while free dessert included Sno Mobile gourmet shaved ice and Cookie Monstah cookies. Ron Reid’s Sunsteel Quartet from Berklee College of Music provided the perfect summertime vibe with live steelpan music. The Friends sponsored their food truck partners to provide the delicious free food, with generous support, from event sponsor Capital One.
April kicked off the Friends’ 8th season of programming the Brewer Fountain Plaza which includes tables & chairs, umbrellas, quality food, and piano music at lunchtime. Today, the Plaza is one of the most popular gathering places in the city for tourists and residents alike. Brewer Plaza programming and all of the work of the Friends is made possible thanks to contributions from the community. Our two most successful food trucks, Bon Me and Cookie Monstah, are both back on the Plaza seven days a week each. Berklee College of Music is also back for the live weekday piano performances and we will be working with them this season to implement a pilot program for bringing a variety of live music to the Plaza.
On May 5th, Cinco de Mayo, a food truck promotion took place on the Plaza sponsored by Hood Sour Cream. Hood gave away 1,000 free tacos topped with Hood Sour Cream Squeeze from their branded food truck. The event was a total success and possibly coming later this summer – a free pizza promotion!
