Consult the Time Out Boston events calendar for things to do year-round in the Hub. Everyone knows that Boston has the wildest tea parties around—given the city's revolutionary pedigree, it's hardly surprising the calendar features its fair share of historical re-enactments. But alongside such traditional local celebrations as the annual Boston Tea Party Re-enactment in spring and summer's Boston Pops Fourth of July Concert on the Esplanade in Back Bay are more offbeat events like the Massachusetts Cannabis Reform Coalition's Freedom Rally on Boston Common in the fall and the unashamedly geeky sci-fi convention Arisia in winter. From mid March to mid August, Dine Out Boston gives you the opportunity to feast at some of the best Boston restaurants at highly palatable prices. This cultured metropolis is also known for its arts events—notably the alcohol-free New Year's Eve program, First Night, which has become a model for more than 100 cities worldwide.
