Chroma’s Fall Event Roundup
With its refreshingly cool air and vibrant colors, it’s no wonder why fall in Cambridge is one of our favorite times of year. Bask in autumn’s greatness with Chroma’s Fall Event Roundup, spotlighting the top can’t-miss events around town.
Head of the Charles Regatta
Once again, the world’s best crew teams will embark in this epic, two-day rowing competition through the Charles River on October 17 & 18th. Drawing over 11,000 athletes and 400,000 spectators, the Head of the Charles Regatta is one of the most quintessential Boston events happening this fall. Get your Sperrys ready and head to the halfway point of the race (between the Anderson and Weeks bridges) to catch the most action.
7th Annual Oyster Festival
Beginning September 17th and trekking through October 14th, all Legal Seafoods locations throughout Boston will feature a menu with exotic treats like fried Sriracha or baked lobster spinach oysters. LSF will also host four events spread throughout the course of the fest, each at a different location. On Sunday, September 20th, the Shellfish Shindig comes to Cambridge. With dollar oysters at their outdoor terrace bar, this shindig shouldn’t be missed.
If you missed the spring lineup, you’re in luck; the fall roster is possibly looking even better. The three-day festival returns to City Hall Plaza September 25-27th with more amazing music, eats & beer. With acts like The Avett Brothers, Alabama Shakes, Alt-J and Chvrches, there’s a little something for everyone. Select tickets are somehow still available, so grab ’em today!
The Harpoon Octoberfest
The Harpoon Octoberfest is one of our favorite fall events in town. Happening October 2nd & 3rd, this beer- & bratwurst-filled event also offers your favorite local food trucks, music, a German chocolate cake-eating contest and brewery tours by the hour. Just $20 gets you festival admission, a souvenir pint cup and a beer ticket. Hop a shuttle from South Station for super smooth access. – Jillian Gregoire
