Boston Blooms Block Party

Mayor Michelle Wu, in partnership with the Downtown Boston Business Improvement District, the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy, and the Greenway Business Improvement District, today announced Boston Blooms, an April 13 block party welcoming employees, residents, and visitors back to Downtown Boston. As the City of Boston continues to recover from the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the goal is to bolster our local economy by encouraging everyone to support Boston’s Downtown.

Businesses have adapted and innovated beyond their normal operating procedures in response to the pandemic. The City of Boston seeks to continue to help facilitate this transition through the recovery and beyond, as we all pivot to the new normal. The Small Business Relief Fund 2.0, which was recently replenished with an additional $5 million, and the securing of local partnerships to provide targeted technical assistance to applicants are two examples of how the City has sought to provide all of the necessary resources to help our small businesses keep their doors open.
Additionally, the City is working to reimagine Boston’s public spaces, particularly City Hall Plaza, and is seeking to work with commercial property owners to fill vacant storefronts and provide affordable housing and childcare opportunities while tying it all together through a PR campaign to encourage people to come back to the City. All of these efforts are to make Boston a vibrant, inviting, and exciting place to visit once again.
