UPDATE: We regret to report that Danehy Park Family Day – which was originally scheduled for Saturday, September 23, 2023 from 11-3 p.m. with a rain date of Sunday, September 24 – has been cancelled due to the expected rain forecasted throughout the weekend.


Enjoy a free, fun-filled day of children's amusement rides, activities, arts and crafts, music and roving performers, plus food and giveaways (while supplies last)! Check out performances throughout the day at the children's stage.  

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 welcome.
