Five years ago staff from MASCO’s Area Planning and Development Department had an idea: Let’s host a free concert and bring in a few food trucks to encourage area employees to get out of their offices and take some time to enjoy our community.
And as such, MASCO’s Summer Concert and Food truck festival “Bands on Blackfan” was realized.
In the spirit of true collaboration, the abutters along Blackfan Circle agreed to help MASCO fund the summertime initiative, and it has proven to be a wise investment and a very popular event.
This month, the fifth annual “Bands on Blackfan” returns with a date each month – June, July and August – to bring live music and the much beloved food truck lunchtime cuisine back to the Longwood Medical and Academic Area.
Here’s the partial schedule. We will update it as we confirm additional food trucks.
June 21st: Thinkin’ Big Band with Mo Rockin’ Fusion, Sate Grill, Bon Me and Frozen Hoagies.
