The Dorchester Bike & Brew 2017 is a family friendly community festival designed to showcase the growing cycling community in #Dorchester and the burgeoning Boston brewery scene, along with food trucks, live music, DIY bike repair demos, giveaways, etc.
The event is held on Peabody Square West Plaza, and a small portion of Talbot Ave (between Dorchester and Welles Ave) closed to vehicular traffic for the duration of the festival. It is free to attend, with food and beverages available for individual purchase.
Music: We will again feature a fun for all ages opening act, this year Second Line Social Aid and Pleasure Society Brass Band at 7:00 and we are excited to confirm that The Nephrok! Allstars will headline the event (funk & soul), with their sets starting at 7:50.
Food Trucks: We plan to host three savory food trucks (Jamaica Mi Hungry, Baby's Bonetown BBQ, Sheherazad Truck) and one sweets truck (TBA) to maximize your dinner options, and we are excited to have the Boston Water and Sewer Commission H2Go mobile water station join us again!
