Danehy Park Family Day

The City of Cambridge will host Danehy Park Family Day on Saturday, September 17, from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. Rain date is September 18, 2022.

Enjoy a fun-filled day of amusement rides, arts and crafts, music, and roving performers, plus food, T-shirts, and colorful kites (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.

Please note masks are recommended for all people when riding the shuttles.
