Calendar event image

The City of Cambridge will host the 25th Annual Danehy Park Family Day. Enjoy a fun-filled day of children's amusement rides, arts and crafts, music and roving performers, plus snacks, T-shirts, and colorful kites (while supplies last)! Check out performances throughout the day at the children's stage.  This year, we will not be serving hot dogs, but will instead be distributing snacks (while supplies last).

Danehy Park is a 55-acre facility located at 99 Sherman Street in North Cambridge (adjacent to Garden and New Streets). This free event, sponsored by the City of Cambridge, attracts 8,000-10,000 people annually and offers something for everyone.    

Shuttle buses will be running throughout Cambridge to provide transportation. Danehy Park can be reached by public transportation:  #74 bus or #78 bus from Harvard Square; #83 bus from Central Square; or take a shuttle bus from the Alewife MBTA Station.  Picnics and lawn chairs are encouraged.

Please note that the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and CDC advises all unvaccinated residents to wear face coverings outdoors when they can’t socially distance. For fully vaccinated people, masks are optional outdoors – but if your mask makes you feel more comfortable, wear it! Masks are required for all people, regardless of vaccination status, when riding shuttle buses to/from the event.
