Insider Guide to Open Newbury: September 9

Street-Side Dining, Sidewalk Sales, and Fun for the Whole Family: Open Newbury is Back

Newbury Street businesses are once again rolling out the red carpet in celebration of Open Newbury, when the street will close to cars and become pedestrian promenade.  Stroll down the middle of the street and enjoy refreshments, gifts with purchase, family friendly games and activities, and much more from your favorite Newbury Street businesses.  And don’t forget — it’s also tax-free weekend, which makes the deals that much sweeter!
