Life is good Festival on Boston Common, Saturday, June 20th, 11-5PM

Mark your calendars! It’s free fun just one day before Father’s Day at the Life is good Festival on Boston Common. Our here-comes-the-summer outdoor celebration features an amazing music lineup including five-time Grammy and Lifetime Achievement Award winners The Blind Boys of Alabama, rising national star Brett Dennen,and family-favorite Stevesongs. We’ll keep you rockin’ all day with food and drink aplenty plus a colorful mix of good-time games and activities for all ages.

The day also features a high-energy fundraising walk, the Good Walk for Kids, a scenic 3-mile route that can't be beat. You'll start at Boston Common, walk along the new Rose Kennedy Greenway to see it all in bloom, stroll along the Harbor Walk with beautiful ocean views, and return to the Common for Festival music and fun. It’s a perfect family and friends outing and it directly helps kids. Now more than ever, a growing number of children who have been hurt by violence, poverty, and loss need our help. To register for the Good Walkclick here.

All funds raised at the Festival will be directed by the Life is good Kids Foundation to exceptional Boston-based nonprofit Project Joy, focused on healing and strengthening our poorest, most vulnerable preschoolers.
