SoWa: What's On Your Block?!
Boston is a collection of neighborhoods that are all filled with vibrancy, diversity, and life! Some neighborhoods are known for their history, others for their culinary scene, and others for art and culture. Boston’s South End is a part of the city that is definitely taking a step forward in the right direction when it comes to increasing community involvement and participation in the arts. The SoWa district is the area of the city that is widely known for its design studios, galleries, home décor showrooms, and fashion boutiques housed in old warehouses.
Luckily for you, SoWa First Friday is actually coming up on May 3rd, 2019. This is a well known event that happens on the first Friday of every month. On First Fridays, artist exhibits and showrooms all over this area open their doors to the public for an evening of art and inspiration. Get a chance to meet the artists and interact with them in a conversational, casual setting. One of the best parts about this is that the event is family friendly and totally free. Take the three minute walk from the residences at 88 Wareham and be sure not to miss any of the events that are coming to the area.
The 15th annual SoWa Art Walk is taking place right after the First Friday Event and is similar to First Friday but with an even more diversified portfolio of art. As much as art is the main point of emphasis in this area, the residents also take pride in the fresh produce they make available to those that enjoy cooking for themselves or others.
Be sure to check out the Boston beer Garden this May which will feature all of the music, beer and food that you could possibly handle. Classic food trucks come from all of the local eateries and different parts of the world. The ‘Boston Sun’ mentioned the event in its newspaper on April 25th, 2019 stating that the Beer Garden was a huge hit last year and is a great way for the neighborhood to keep things fresh.
This area has clearly demonstrated that it has the ability to keep its entire community involved with the festivities happening in SoWa If you would like to explore more events going on in the area, check out this list of upcoming events here!
