The Lawn On D Is Back for Season Six! Here Is Everything You Need to Know

Today marks the official start of the sixth season of The Lawn On D Powered by Citizens Bank – Boston’s most innovative and dynamic outdoor event space, located right in BCEC’s backyard.

The season will kick off with The Lawn On D’s first family event of the season, Swing into Spring, on May 4, followed by a Cinco De Mayo celebration on May 5.

The Lawn On D will resume its monthly Signature Event Series, and the two most popular family events, Summer Block Party and Pumpkin Palooza, have been extended to two days:
May 4 – Swing into Spring – The Lawn On D’s traditional Opening Day celebration!
New! June 16 – Take Me Out to the Ballgame – We’ll be bringing all of the fun from America’s oldest ballpark to The Lawn On D! Highlights include the famous Red Sox Showcase, a live Red Sox game shown on a jumbotron, photo ops, and a variety of fun activities.
July 6 & 7 – Summer Block Party – One of our most popular events, featuring bubble soccer, mini golf, rock climbing, and a return engagement with the Blue Man Group which will include an exclusive set plus the annual drum-off competition!
September 14 – More details coming soon.
October 26 & 27 - Pumpkin Palooza – Another all-time favorite bringing tons of Halloween fun for all ages and thousands of free pumpkins to The Lawn On D!

The much loved Monday Funday community outreach program also returns, building on last year’s highly successful partnership with the Boston Centers for Youth & Families. The Lawn On D will welcome summer youth programs and thousands of campers from across the city for games and entertainment provided by our friends from the Museum of Science, the New England Aquarium, Animal Adventures Family Zoo & Rescue Center, and more.

“As the stewards of Boston’s most innovative and active public space, we are proud to again deliver a diverse mix of free, high-quality community programming for guests of all ages at The Lawn On D,” said David Gibbons, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority. “The Lawn’s popularity continues to grow every season and we look forward to celebrating with our guests in an environment that is safe, fun, and educational.”

A key new addition this season is the so-called “Bar in a Box” which debuted during The Lawn On D’s winter pop-up Chillin’ On D. The full-service bar, created from a refurbished 20-foot shipping container, will be located on the North side of The Lawn On D near the Westin. The ‘Bar in a Box’ will encourage further activation of the full lawn and provide additional options for access to food and drinks while also reducing service wait times for guests.

“We are excited to be entering our fourth year as the premier F&B events and concession provider, and are ready to deliver an even better season”, said David Doyle, Regional Director of Rebel Restaurants. “The Lawn On D’s weekly schedule is once again filled with fun activities and entertainment to suit all ages. Mark your calendar – we look forward to seeing you!”

The Lawn On D’s most iconic feature, Swing Time 3.0, will be back with swing colors changing from blue to orange when in movement.

Citizens Bank returns as The Lawn On D’s title sponsor for the 2019 season and will again feature its “Bankers On D” brand ambassadors. The Citizens Bank kiosk has become the information hub for visitors to The Lawn On D, providing information about the latest events, as well as offering special giveaways and exclusive activities to visitors. Citizens will also continue to host their weekly Corn Hole Tournaments at The Lawn On D on Friday nights. “As a partner with the Lawn On D for the past four years we have been so excited to see the incredible events and activities that have brought the community together,” said Jerry Sargent, President of Citizens Bank Massachusetts. “The Lawn On D is a jewel in the City that provides dynamic outdoor space for all to enjoy.”

In addition, Citizens Bank and their community partners from throughout the city will be featured at one of The Lawn On D’s special community events, and similar to last year, will bring a variety of fun activities, entertainment, and giveaways.

The Lawn On D continues to be one of the most sought-after outdoor venues for private events in Boston. With a growing number of events already contracted for 2019, it looks like season six is off to a strong start.

The Lawn On D is available to book for various kinds of private functions, as well as an extension to your BCEC event. Dates are still available for 2019: call us at 877-393-3393 or email to get started.
