Moondance Gala

A Magical Evening in the Park

Saturday, September 23rd was a beautiful evening filled with friends and neighbors who joined together to support the Esplanade. This year, 450 guests joined us, raising more than $970,000 to maintain and improve the Esplanade. In the coming year, your support will help fund the installation of our Wayfinding Directional Signage, the planting of bulbs and perennials for next spring, the pursuit of more public art on the Esplanade, educational programming such as continued Family Walks, and much more. At the root it is you who has allowed us to do so much and add to one of Boston’s most iconic greenspaces.

We would like to extend a special thanks to this year’s Moondance Co-Chairs, Jean and Chris Egan and Lori and Matthew Sidman, as well as those who served on the Moondance Gala Committee, and the Esplanade Association Board Members.

If you participated in the photo booth, you can find the photos here: and other photos from the event on our Facebook page. The event was covered in the Boston Globe.
