Boston Harborfest 2014
is a Fourth of July Festival that showcases the colonial and maritime heritage of the cradle of the American Revolution: the historic City of Boston.

The award-winning festival strives to honor and remember the past, celebrate the present, and educate the future with reenactments, concerts, historical tours and much, much more. Daily Events during the Festival are concentrated in Boston's historic downtown and waterfront districts.

Over the years, Harborfest has grown from a local event to a national celebration.
In 1982 there were 35 activities over the course of three days. Now in its 33rd year, Harborfest is considered to be the largest patriotic celebration in the nation
with visitors enjoying more than 200 activities during the Festival.
