Spectacle on Spectacle 2024

Spectacle on Spectacle is the premier annual celebration of Boston’s harbor, islands, and waterfront – and Boston Harbor Now’s largest annual fundraising event, located on beautiful Spectacle Island within the Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park.

Spectacle on Spectacle is a uniquely fun and inspiring evening party on Spectacle Island that celebrates Boston’s harbor, islands, and waterfront. The event features delicious food and drinks crafted by diverse local chefs and bartenders, energizing performances by local musicians, and a glorious sunset over the Boston skyline – with a 20-minute open-air harbor cruise on either side of this one-of-a-kind event.

Proceeds from Spectacle on Spectacle are a major source of support for Boston Harbor Now’s year-round mission of promoting a vibrant, welcoming, and resilient Boston Harbor, islands, and waterfront.
