15 Best Festivals and Shows in Boston during August 2018


This month in Boston runs heavy on boat and fishing festivals meaning opportunities to go aboard and to indulge in seafood. Then taking advantage of the last days of summer are wonderful outdoor music festivals, while indoors there are productions like Aladdin, Moulin Rouge and the Book of Mormon, and big names visiting for one-night concert are Jay-Z and Beyonce. Of course, kids can still enjoy fairs and festivals with lots of kids activities.
