Boston Labor Day events

Your Guide to Boston Labor Day Events

With yet another summer coming to a close, a proper send-off is in order. No matter what summer brought, marking the completion of the season honors the closing of one chapter and the beginning of the next. It also makes room for us to reflect on our own milestones and mentally prepare ourselves for change. With Labor Day arriving at around the same time as the next season, Boston Labor Day events provide a variety of choices for your style of celebration:

Here are a few of our top picks to celebrate Labor Day Weekend in Boston.


  • Illuminate The Harbor: This fireworks event just before Labor Day Weekend is a spectacular way to end summer with flare.
  • Labor Day Cruise: Pier Pressure is hosting a Labor Day Weekend White Party Cruise on Sunday 9/4 (21+ only!) The cruise features two levels, full bar, DJ, and three hours of fun. Boarding starts at 9PM, so don’t forget to be on time!
  • Campfire Festival: This Labor Day Weekend music festival, presented by Club Passim, hosts “in the round” performances and introduces new, local talent to its audience.
  • Institute of Contemporary Art: Visit one of our favorite local art museums when they offer free admission on Labor Day.
