UPCOMING EVENTS


The Cambridge Wheels Car Show brings dozens of the highest quality show cars right into the historic heart of our city. Some of these throwback beauties may have even driven these streets. Shops and restaurants will be open, there will be music and trophies awarded for various categories.



 By popular demand, our annual celebration of Blues, Brews and Barbecue returns to Second Saturday September. We'll bring only the best live music, barbecue-inspired dishes and beer to this annual event. Help us say goodbye to another great year in downtown Cambridge.



 Help us kick off this first-year event on High Street, where we will be sipping the finest wines from the region, eating some great food outdoors and enjoying live music.



 We'll post more details on this as we get closer, but we're planning on hositng all of our new friends from IronMan Maryland, and they will need some entertainment. Some things you can count on: live music, awesome food, and a festive time to celebrate all of the race participants.



Crabi Gras comes back home to treat us to the best oysters in the world, from right here in Dorchester County. Pair them up with hundreds of hot sauces, sit back, sip on a drink and enjoy live music in Cannery Way.




High Spot welcomes you back to High Street, this time to taste Belgian-inspired beer from regional breweries, as well as some delicious food from local restaurants.



 The world's first bushel basket Christmas tree debuted last year in downtown Cambridge on the corner of Gay and Race Streets, and we are proud it has become an instant tradition. We're bringing it back, bigger and better than ever, so don't miss the tree lighting, which will kick off the annual Christmas parade through town.
