Honk Fest Friday - Sunday
This festival is for all of us recovering high-school marching band members - and all lovers of brass, music, funky costumes and dancing in the street. The event spans three days and goes all over Somerville, centered around Davis, and down to . . .
Harvard Square Oktoberfest and Honk Parade Sunday 12 - 6 PM
Honk Fest's finale is a parade down Mass Ave., all the way from Davis down to Harvard Square. This is your chance to see all the Honk bands at once and soak up a bit of the gemuchlichkeit of the German street festival.
Boston Local Food Fest Saturday 11 AM - 5 PM
Best outdoor food fest hands-down. All local, all free. Almost 100 vendors dishing out samples of delectable delights. Demos of things like making mozzerella and *gulp* butchering a pig. It all goes down on the Fort Point channel waterfront and to boot, it's a zero-waste event.
Somerville Oktoberfest Sunday 12 -6 PM
Somerville gets in on the Oktoberfest action. Much more German than the Harvard Square event. Here you'll be able to get sauerkraut and bratwurst. No Honk bands, but you'll catch some of New England's finest leiderhosen-wearing oom-pah bands.
