Tourism, Sports, and Entertainment

The Mayor's Office of Tourism, Sports, and Entertainment supports the tourism industry in Boston by producing events, supporting film and TV production, and marketing the City to conventions and visitors.

Our mission is to advance tourism in Boston and promote participation in public celebrations from Boston residents and visitors to our city. We bring people to Boston with events including festivals, concerts, exhibitions, and public celebrations both downtown and in Boston’s neighborhoods.

We support film and television through the Boston Film Bureau with permitting, location assistance, and coordination with local and state agencies. We help neighborhood based groups with event production, and encourage international relations through our Sister City and Distinguished Guest Programs.
