Esplanade Summer Dock Party

A Party to Benefit the Park

On Thursday, July 20th, 2017, the Esplanade Friends Council will host the 7th Annual Esplanade Summer Dock Party from 7:00–10:30 pm on the Docks at Community Boating Inc. Over the past six years the Dock Party has become a Boston social calendar staple and has sold out weeks in advance.

Each year, the Dock Party invites over 200 guests join us for a fantastic night of dinner, drinks and dancing on the docks. The funds raised at this event are critical to our organization’s ability to fund important park improvements and community enriching programs for the enjoyment of the park’s millions of visitors. The event will include a BBQ dinner, dessert, beer, wine and music from a live DJ.
