The Harvard Square Business Association is excited to announce the 35th Annual MayFair.  Come experience the sounds of Mexico as we celebrate Cinco de Mayo (+1) on May 6th (rain date, May 20th) from noon to 6pm!  To commemorate this fete of Mexican culture and heritage, Mariachi music will be performed from our main stage (in the super cross walk in front on The Out of Town News Kiosk) all afternoon!

For 35 years, MayFair has been the official party to kickoff Spring in Harvard Square.  In addition to the exuberant and colorful performances of our Mexican musicians, be sure to stop by the Passimstage at the corner of Brattle and Church Street for sets by some of the most highly esteemed folk artists in the area.  Have the urge to dance in the streets?  Make your way to the intersection of Mt. Auburn and JFK Streets to experience reggae performed by Harvard Square favorites, Dread Rocks.

Take in the sights of fleeting works of chalk art at our Cambridge Rotary sponsored ‘Chalk on the Walk’.  Raise a glass in one of beer gardens, hosted by Beat Brasserie, The Hourly Oyster House,Alden & Harlow, The Sinclair and El Jefe’s Taqueria.  Entertain the kids at the Victorian Children’s Play Area in Winthrop Park and on a trip of the event grounds aboard the Roaming Railroad.  Shop at over 60 artisan booths, featuring affordable art, clothing, jewelry and more.  Satisfy your hunger at one of our international food vendors – you’ll have over 50 food vendors to choose from.  Take in a performance at our dance stage.  There is no better place to usher in warmer temperatures than Harvard Square’s legendary MayFair!
