The BWB Family Reunion '22

On Saturday, July 16th from 12:00 - 8:00 p.m., we’re taking over the Lawn on D yet again for a day-long celebration of Black experiences, community and culture. Inspired by traditional family gatherings, we’re bringing together Black Bostonians from across neighborhoods, hometowns, and generations to experience joy and create memories with friends and family. Count on all your favorite Black-folk classics from line-dancing and a Spades tournament, to double dutch, relay races, trivia and of course good music. BWB members have access to a VIP reception from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m., featuring a karaoke-style, Family Talent Show. RSVP for special access, first dibs on the family t-shirt and helpful information, like where to find parking.
