A Harvard Square Holiday Shopping Kickoff Celebration!
Come join us on Wednesday, December 4th at 5:00 p.m. at the Holyoke Center (newly named the Smith Center), for a Harvard Square Holiday Shopping Celebration!  “Each year, our Harvard Square tradition is to celebrate the holiday shopping season with a festive event hosted by our partners and good friends at Harvard University….and this year is no exception,” offers Denise Jillson, Executive Director at the Harvard Square Business Association.


This fete promotes retailers in the area by encouraging Harvard affiliates to shop in Harvard Square for the holiday season.  This effort helps support all businesses, and particularly the locally-owned, independent businesses that comprise 75% of the businesses in the Square.

This year’s Mexican-themed celebration, which is free and open to the public, will feature music by Mariachi Estrellas de Boston, Mexican hot chocolate, specially prepared seasonal cookies and Pinatas stuffed with Hershey kisses and candy canes.  

This occasion is a warm and welcoming way to thank friends, neighbors and passersby for making Harvard Square their holiday shopping, dining and cultural destination!

Holyoke Center (Smith Center) is located at 1350 Mass. Avenue in the heart of Harvard Square.
