Now in its 17th season, the SoWa Open Market is Boston's largest celebration of local art, food and music. Every Sunday, over 175 makers and artists of all kinds and thousands of visitors converge in SoWa, amidst a vibrant backdrop of artist studios, galleries, boutiques and vintage shops.

Each Sunday we welcome one or two bands/artists to join us. 

The Opportunity

Visitors can kick back and relax at our outdoor Beer Garden, featuring live music, BostonĂ¢€™s favorite food trucks, and lawn games. 

Bands can entertain a flowing crowd of engaged folks looking to relax, shop and eat every Sunday.  Continue to build your local fanbase!
