It’s that time of year again- the air is getting colder, the days are getting shorter, and snow is falling onto our city’s busy streets. Winter coming to Fort Point signals our signature event- the Fort Point Holiday Stroll. Join us at the Friends of Fort Point Channel in celebrating our lovely neighborhood and its many businesses. From 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. December 16th, stroll through our scenic neighborhood, nibble on sweet & savory treats from restaurants and bars, explore artist’s galleries & studios, and shop at boutiques & pop-up shops. Don’t forget to grab your map at any of the participating locations and collect stamps for a chance to win amazing prizes from local boutiques and restaurants. Some of the fine folks involved in the Holiday Stroll this year are 249 A Street Artists Cooperative, Barlow’s, Bon Me, Galyean Vail Design Studio, Made In Fort Point, and Tavern Road, businesses and people that really exemplify what makes Fort Point so great. Here’s a link to the full list for your perusal. This event is free and open to the public- so come on down to Fort Point, and shop in style this holiday season.
We really want participants to take the time to slowly take in everything that makes Fort Point unique among the other neighborhoods of Boston: the historic architecture, the shops, fantastic restaurants, the arts- there’s truly something for everyone here. Also on the 16th is the Boston Tea Party reenactment at the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum. The Holiday Stroll is the perfect activity to do before watching the tea get thrown into the sea. Make your holiday shopping a little bit more special and meaningful this winter, and head down to visit Fort Point today.
Still on the fence? Here are some testimonials from our great neighbors!
“We are so excited about the Fort Point Channel Holiday Stroll! We are tucked away next to Bee’s Knees inside the building at 24 Farnsworth Street, so we are thrilled when people discover us and we get to see our neighbors and friends.”
