Explore Culture

Boston is brimming with music, theater, and arts events. Beacon Hill Village connects members to the latest happenings. There are music performances to enjoy, plays in the Theater District, the ballet, museum exhibitions, and more. There's always something going on in our great city!

The BHV program committee designs and plans a variety of opportunities to take advantage of all that Boston and the surrounding areas have to offer. By attending events together, we not only appreciate the program itself, but also enjoy the company of our friends and neighbors.

A truly collaborative effort makes attending these events possible through the efforts of the BHV Program Committee and BHV staff. There can be a charge for events but some are discounted and some are even free. Transportation is arranged when appropriate.
