Avoid the commotion of the masses on the Esplanade, yet preserve the spirit of camaraderie and the sounds and sights of the Boston POPS as you enter our gates. A summer cookout, ice cold beverages, family fun, and an awesome waterfront view of the fireworks. This Independence Day option is by far the best that Boston has to offer.
People of all ages and from all places join us for our safe and festive party; this event is especially appealing to families as it offers a refuge from the chaos of hundreds of thousands that line the shores of the Charles. Feel free to bring extra non-alcoholic beverages, snacks, and lawn chairs(folding chairs are provided).
We sell out EVERY YEAR! Don’t miss out, get your tickets now!

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can I see the Pops Concert from your location.
A: We will have 3 Jumbotrons to view the Concert. You are able to see the cannons from our dock. If you want to catch the concert in person we recommend you go to the Free Pops Concert on the 3rd. Check out theofficial July 4th website for more info.
Q: Can I go to the Pops Concert and then come back to the docks to see the fireworks.
A: We do not recommend it. When the concert begins the entire Esplanade is packed very tightly and movement is restricted. You’d be unable to get back to the Boat House in time for the fireworks. We broadcast the entire show over loud speakers and jumbotrons.
Q: Do I need to bring a chair or blanket?
A: No, we provide seating. However, some people prefer to bring there own lawn style folding chair to use instead of our folding chairs. In addition seating is available in some of our smaller boats and at picnic tables on a first come basis.
Q: Is any part of the ticket price tax-deductible?
A: Community Boating is a 501c(3). The amount of the contribution that is deductible for federal income tax purposes is limited to the excess of the ticket price over the value of goods and services received. Our good faith estimate of the value of goods and services received is $35. As such, if you purchased 1 adult ticket for $125 the tax deductible amount would be $90. Please consult your tax advisor for more information.
Q: Is your dock handicap accessible?
A: Yes. Our new dock has been built to be 100% accessible.
Q: Will there be anything vegetarian, vegan, or gluten free to eat?
A: b.good will be serving vegi-burgers and 3 different salads; these options are vegetarian. One salad will be vegan and the vegi-burgers are vegan. Gluten Free Buns are available by special request from the catering manager and burgers are 100% beef or chicken, in addition some of the salads are gluten-free. All items will be marked in regard to dairy, eggs, gluten, etc.
