TO DO THIS WEEKEND: BOSTON September 15 – 17th, 2023
Four Festivals and a Hurricane
This weekend is shaping up to be a busy one for festival-goers in the New England area, with four major events scheduled to take place. However, there is one caveat: Hurricane Lee is currently churning in the Atlantic Ocean, and there is a chance that it could impact some of these festivals.
Wormtown Music Festival is the largest music festival in the region this weekend, and it is scheduled to take place at Camp Keewanee in Greenfield, Massachusetts. The festival lineup features a variety of artists, including Andy Frasco & The U.N., The Motet, lespecial, Dogs In A Pile, and Karina Rykman.
Breakaway Boston is a two-day electronic music festival that will be held at The Stage at Suffolk Downs in Boston, Massachusetts. The festival lineup includes a number of big-name DJs.
Boston Fuzzstival is a two-day festival that will be held at Arts at the Armory in Somerville, Massachusetts. The festival lineup features 22 up-and-coming bands, as well as some established acts.
2023 Rhode Island Seafood Festival is a seafood festival that will be held at the Rhode Island Seafood Festival grounds in Providence, Rhode Island. The festival will feature a variety of seafood vendors, as well as live music and other entertainment.
Hurricane Lee is currently a Category 1 hurricane. The National Hurricane Center has issued a hurricane watch for coastal areas of Rhode Island and Massachusetts. If Hurricane Lee does make landfall in New England, it could bring strong winds, heavy rain, and coastal flooding.
Festival organizers are monitoring the situation closely, and they have contingency plans in place in case the hurricane does impact their events. However, it is important for festival-goers to be aware of the potential risks, and to have a plan in place in case the festival is canceled or postponed.
