Summer Solstice at World’s End

Summer Solstice at World’s End returns Saturday, June 25, 2022! Join The Trustees to celebrate this remarkable property on one of the longest days of the year.

The Aldous Collins Band returns, with Jay Psaros opening at 5PM. Treat yourself to a meal from Fenway’s own “Sausage Guy” or the Cruisin’ Cabby Shack food truck and ice cream from Hornstra. Vitamin Sea, Widowmaker, and Burke’s Alewerks will be serving up craft brews. Relax as you watch the sun set over the Boston skyline with your friends and family.

Pre-registration is required. No tickets will be sold onsite. Cost of admission is $60 per car, $48 per car for Trustees members. Field parking is included in registration, with a limited number of accessible spots upon request. A rain date is scheduled for Sunday, June 26. If poor weather requires us to reschedule, all ticket holders will be informed by noon on June 25 by email to the address provided at registration. Because of the number of guests attending, dogs are not allowed at this event. We hope to see your furry friends at World’s End another day!

The party this year is especially festive as we celebrate 50 years since the Boston Harbor Islands entered the State Park system, and 25 years since the establishment of the Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park! World’s End is one of 34 Islands and Peninsulas that make up the National and State Park system, one of the largest recreational spaces in Eastern Massachusetts.

Together, 11 organizations support the mission of Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park: “To make the Boston Harbor Islands system — with opportunities for education, recreation, and restful solitude within an urban area — an integral part of the life of the region and the nation by protecting the islands and their associated resources while at the same time improving public knowledge and access.”
