The first tour takes place June 6 at 6:30 p.m., with the final excursion taking place June 29 at 3 p.m.

  

Boston Pride for the People Festival & Parade: This June 8 extravaganza begins with a colorful procession at 11 a.m. that commences in Copley Square before winding through the South End and finishing at the festival site on Boston Common. Expect performers both local and national, as well as a block party later that afternoon on City Hall Plaza catering to the 21+ crowd.

 

Pride Night at Fenway Park: The Boston Red Sox host the Philadelphia Phillies on June 11 at 7:10 p.m. for the team’s annual celebration of the local LGBTQIA + community.
