The City of Boston is relaunching Open Newbury Street starting on August 21, 2022, for six consecutive Sundays of car-free Newbury Street.
Newbury Street will be car-free from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m., from Berkeley Street to Massachusetts Avenue. The intersections of Exeter Street, Fairfield Street, Gloucester Street and Hereford Street will be car-free. The remaining intersections will be open to vehicular traffic for public safety access. Parking will be restricted beginning at 5 a.m.
Whether you’re shopping, dining out, or just going for a walk, pedestrian-only days on Newbury Street are a Boston summer staple.
Open Newbury Street will occur on these Sundays in 2022:
Newbury Street is a mile-long, eight-block stretch of shops, salons, galleries and restaurants. This famous Boston street becomes a pedestrian-only walkway on Sundays in the summer. The street is closed to vehicles to allow pedestrians the opportunity to use the full width of the street, from Berkeley Street to Massachusetts Avenue.
