Community Activities
Dorchester is a busy place but sometimes its tough to find out what is happening – we try to make it easier to find news and activities with our community calendar. We also post  regular highlights of our events and items of interest to local businesses and the community at large here. We also have great local news coverage with the Dorchester Reporter and Bay State Banner.

Events through the Year – In Dorchester we enjoy having a good time, especially for a good cause!
Our signature fall event is “Martinis on the Avenue”  – we had a great time at Dotini 2014 on November 6th at The Blarney Stone – Click here for details on Dotini!

Wintertime activities include Small Business Saturday on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, the Dorchester Tree Lighting trolley tour which visits several Main Street districts on the same day, and Deck the Windows Holidays on Main Streets to encourage local shopping.

Come springtime we gather to clean up the neighborhood with Boston Shines and hold our Annual Meeting to note our accomplishments, elect new board members and set goals for the coming year.

The first Sunday of June is Dorchester Day – we love the annual parade down Dorchester Avenue and a four mile march with our float celebrating local businesses.

Summertime finds many outdoor events and sports activities in Town Field and Ronan Park, Fields Corner’s two green spaces.
