Spectacle Summer Nights featuring City Winery Boston

Spectacle Island will stay open for an after-hours experience– an evening of relaxation, fun, and music in partnership with L.L. Bean and City Winery Boston.

Visitors can sit on the porch and enjoy live music, set up a picnic dinner, roast marshmallows on the beach, hike with a ranger, try your hand at fly fishing, or relax in a hammock.

Bring your own picnic or make it easy to have a gourmet meal en plein airwith one of our picnic packages (must be ordered in advance). Make it a picture perfect island experience by adding a picnic basket and blanket.
