Now entering its fifth season, the Riverside BBQ Series matches New England’s most creative chefs with inspired craft brewers and awesome bands all in a beautiful setting along the Charles River. It’s a pop-up kitchen, intimate concert, and beer festival all rolled into one all-inclusive experience.
