Boston Columbus Day Parade
Columbus Day is a special holiday in our city. Join us as we take to the streets of North Boston to celebrate local and American history on Sunday, October 13th! Our annual Columbus Day Parade honors not only the famed explorer’s voyage of 1492, but the Massachusetts military, Boston’s prevalent Italian heritage, and the very spirit of discovery – it’s also the middle of a 3-day weekend! Festivities start at 1pm near the Haymarket T Station, just 1 mile from InterContinental® Boston, then wind through North End streets such as Atlantic Avenue, Hanover Street, and Endicott.

What’s in the Parade?
The huge march draws an average of 150,000 revelers from all walks of life, and all across Boston. There are marching bands, military units, actors in colonial garb, Italian-Boston organizations, sports floats, local political figures, vintage cars, and cultural groups of all kinds. Find a clear vantage point along the route and get comfortable, because it lasts a few hours.

Where to Eat Afterward
Celebrating the parade is sure to leave you famished, ready to relax and recharge over a delicious meal. Why not head back to InterContinental® Boston for a taste of our signature restaurants?

• Miel Brasserie Provençale – Delight in expertly prepared, herbaceous French cuisine.
• Sushi-Teq – Sip tequila cocktails with Chef Taki-ishi’s fresh-caught sushi menu.
• Rumba – Inspired by Moulin Rouge, move the festivities back to our rum & Champagne bar.

Local Boston Food Festival 2013
Downtown Boston, MA 02109

Sunday, October 6th 


Whether you’ve been here before or it’s your first time, there’s one thing every visitor should know about our city: our food is some of the best in the U.S. Of all the festivals in Massachusetts, few compare to the Boston Local Food Fest when it comes to outright deliciousness. Not only is our coastal location ideal for catching the freshest seafood around, our climate is perfect for farming seasonal fruits and vegetables. It’s with this deep sense of pride that we present everything our region has to offer to diners of all persuasions on Sunday, October 6th, at Wharf District Park on the Rose Kennedy Greenway.  

What’s on the Menu?
A free outdoor food festival that will change the way you look at what’s on your plate, the Boston Local Food Fest aims to make healthy, regionally sourced food accessible to everyone. The event draws nearly 40,000 people a year to its 120+ vendors. Festival-goers can find fresh produce and seafood from local farmers and fishermen, $6 servings from famous Boston restaurants and food trucks, cooking demonstrations by popular chefs, live music, educational exhibits, a children’s area, hands-on workshops, arts, crafts, and information about recycling and sustainable living.

The 4th Annual Local Craft Brewfest
As a fundraiser for the Local Food Festival, the Brewfest is a ticketed sister event on Saturday, October 12th, 3pm-6:30pm. For $45, attendees enjoy unlimited tastings from participating brewers, distillers, and cideries, as well as food samples from local vendors, live music, and amazing views of Boston Harbor.

Boston Book Fest
Every October for the last 5 years, over 12,000 writers and readers have overtaken Copley Square for a free literary festival like none other in town. In honor of the power of language to change the world one word at a time, the Boston Book Festival celebrates all things printed and published. Aspiring writers practice their craft at workshops offered throughout the 3 days of festivities, while kids love the Passport to Imagination activity area, and everyone enjoys the live music on Berklee Stage, with local food vendors preparing delicious signature dishes on-site. The entire event is structured like a street fair, as various publishers and literary publications fill the Square, such as Grub Street, Harvard Review, Barefoot Books, Boston Review, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, The New School, The New York Times, Post Road, Zephyr Press, Ploughshares, and SoHo Press.

Popular Presenters
In addition to inspiring workshops, live entertainment, mouthwatering food, and exhibitors galore, there are also over 150 world-renowned writers and literary presenters at the festival, speaking to audiences in venues such as Trinity Church, Old South Church, and Boston Public Library.

This hotel is well worth the AAA 4 Diamond Rating. We had the most enjoyable experience imaginable. The Spa treatment will place you in a very Happy place and you will love it. Adam our concierge, did a wonderful job, and he was intent on keeping us happy and worry-free. Thanks Adam!!! My wife and I left happy (to see our kids) and sad knowing that we were leaving the Best Hotel in Boston.

We stayed in a corner room, which had plenty of space and a great view of downtown Boston. The bathroom was extra roomy and nicely appointed. We found the staff to be responsive to our requests and the concierge was helpful when we were looking for a local spot for dinner. In fact, the restaurant he recommended was so good, we visited it twice during our stay in Boston. We will definitely choose to stay at this hotel again on our next visit to Boston.

Worst service ever. We had a car service scheduled to pick us up with our 2 year old twins, they didn't let the driver pull in the front door for us (CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS NON SENSE) instead they told us to walk to him to the next corner 300 yards from the hotel entrance. I stayed in many hotels around the states never experienced such service. I would NEVER NEVER NEVER stay here again nor in any Intercontinental anywhere else.

Great location. We walked or took T from South Station all over city and Cambridge. Luxury but not stuffy. Modern rooms, comfy bed, large bath with spa tub and separate shower. One of nicest hotel fitness centers I've seen, including pool, albeit a little cold. Staff were friendly and not snooty. Tried French restaurant Miel...both dinner and breakfast were worth the convenience, especially the eggs hollandaise with lobster!
