Beginning Thursday, September 7, various New England-based breweries will be on location serving their
specialty beverages along with a variety of non-alcohol options from 4:30pm-8:30pm.
Burlington’s Town Center independent restaurants will also be on-site offering signature food dishes every
Thursday, including Hala Eats!, Pizza Works, Rosa Mexicano, True North Coffee, Al Maidah, Sausage Guy,
Viet Citron & School House Ice Cream.
People are encouraged to purchase food, snacks from the businesses along the Cambridge Street corridor,
and enjoy them at Community Corner pocket park. The breweries will rotate each Thursday:
9/7 Zero Gravity
9/14 Lord Hobo
9/21 Lawson’s Finest Liquid
9/28 Mighty Squirrel
An estimated 1,200 people participated in last year’s family and dog-friendly events which featured a
different Massachusetts brewery each week.
Town Center Beer Garden & Local Business Thursdays is part of Burlington’s “placemaking” effort which
is a people-centered approach to the planning, design, and use of public spaces. Through a collaborative
process, do-able improvements are identified and implemented that bring immediate benefits to the people
who use these spaces.
Community Corner pocket park is an installation that converted vehicle parking spaces at 184 Cambridge
Street into a playful public space with green turf. In 2022, Mary Leach’s “Community Corner” entry was chosen as the winning name in the Name the Park contest. Building upon the success of the 2022 Beer Garden Thursdays and the 2021 Beer Garden & Business Open House event, this weekly Thursday night program in September is expected to once again increase foot traffic and business activity in Burlington’s Town Center.
