Mayor Michelle Wu announced the official dates for Open Newbury Street, a city program that opens the popular street to pedestrians only for shopping and family activities.

The 2024 edition of Open Newbury Street will take place over 10 consecutive Sundays, from June 30 to September 1. The street will be closed to cars and other vehicles from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., from Berkeley Street to Massachusetts Avenue.

In March, Wu hinted at the return of Open Newbury Street during a press conference announcing dates for this year’s Boston Open Streets series, saying official dates would be announced at a later date.

“Open Newbury has become a beloved summer tradition in Boston, and I am grateful to the many small business owners who work with the city to make this possible,” Wu said in a press release. “This year we’re excited to add themed days for more special experiences, including an Open Newbury winter break.”

The newly implemented winter dates are intended “to encourage holiday shopping in Back Bay,” according to the release. The city will communicate the exact dates later.

“I encourage residents and visitors to come back again and again starting in June to experience the dining, walking and shopping in the heart of Back Bay,” Wu said.

The 2024 Newbury Street Open will take place on the following dates:

  • June 30th
  • July 7, 14, 21, 28
  • August 4, 11, 18, 25
  • September 1st
  • Two dates in December (to be determined)

“I am so excited to see what was once an experience become a tradition on Newbury Street,” Councilwoman Sharon Durkan said in the release. “Open Newbury represents summer not only for Back Bay residents, but for those throughout the city and visitors from all over.”
