The 27th Annual Rose Garden Party

A fundraising event supporting free family programming in public parks throughout Boston.

Thursday, June 27, 2024, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

James P. Kelleher Rose Garden, Back Bay Fens


Join Mayor Michelle Wu, Honorary Event Chair, along with Boston’s business, arts, community, and philanthropic leaders at the historic James P. Kelleher Rose Garden. Over 3,000 rose bushes will be in peak bloom while you enjoy live entertainment, festive cocktails, dinner, and more.

Proceeds from this signature event go toward funding ParkARTS, which provides free family programming in neighborhood parks throughout Boston. From concerts and movies to arts and crafts workshops and festivals, these localized activities bring joy to tens of thousands of families each year and help bring our communities closer together.

We hope you’ll join us in celebrating and supporting this important cause!
