Town Of Brookline Invites Community Members To Brookline Day 2023

901

Recreation Director Leigh Jackson and the Town of Brookline would like to invite community members to Brookline Day.

Brookline Day is set to take place on Sunday, September 10, 2023, from 11:00 a.m. to 03:00 p.m. The celebration will return to Coolidge Corner this year, after the success of last year’s pilot program. The Town expects roughly 10,000 visitors throughout the day.

Brookline Day is an annual celebration of the community as a great place to live, work, and play, while fostering a connection among residents, neighbors, and businesses. The event will feature Mini Town Hall, games, food, live music, prizes, and other special activities. There will be 100 vendors at the event – the most registered vendors at Brookline Day to date. Children can also enjoy the Kidz Zone, which features inflatable bounce houses, face painting, and a Touch-a-Truck event.

The Town will also be running a community survey to gather feedback on the event at the Brookline Recreation tent. Residents who complete the eight-question survey will be registered to win a Landry’s gift certificate for a $750 bike of their choice.

Residents are encouraged to use public transportation, such as the green line, to get to the event. The Town is working to determine a parking partner so it can offer transportation for South Brookline residents. If you are interested in becoming a community parking sponsor, please reach out to Joshua Cooke at jcooke@brooklinema.gov.

The Town will be providing transportation for residents with accessibility needs to Brookline Day. This service is on-demand and not part of a regularly traveled bus route, so participants will need to call 617-777-9407 to schedule their pick-up/drop-off.

The three locations for pick-up/drop-off are:

  • 22 High Street;
  • Brookline Town Hall, 333 Washington Street;
  • Brookline High School, 115 Greenough Street.

During the event, a drone will be used for the purpose of estimating the total attendance. The drone will not take close up photos of attendees’ faces, and photos taken will not be stored for later use.

Two photographers have been hired to shoot the event for marketing purposes. Photos will be used to advertise next year’s Brookline Day, and attendees have the right to refuse to have their picture taken.

Brookline Day is sponsored by Presenting Sponsor Brookline Bank; Gold Sponsor Viking Sports; Bronze Sponsors Balfour Senior Living, Brookline Booksmith, Cheryl Cotney & Amy Weed Compass, City on a Hill Church, Kaplansky Insurance, Rooted Dental Company, Russian School of Mathematics, Scrub-a-Dub, the Center for Pediatric Dental Care, Washington Square Academy; and Benefactor Sponsors Brookline Democratic Town Committee, Brookline Domestic Violence Roundtable, Brookline Republican Town Committee, Hipstitch LLC, Homewatch CareGivers of Brookline, Livite, Station Street Studios, Unlimited Sotheby’s International Realty, and VCA Brookline Animal Hospital.
