This unique event will enable families to see all that New England has to offer in a fun, interactive setting perfect for the entire family.
From lobsters in Maine to the beaches of Cape Cod, See New England will feature exhibitors from local attractions, destinations, restaurants, theme parks, cruise lines, and much more. In addition to learning about everything New England has to offer, festival-goers will be able to book trips and purchase tickets to local attractions onsite at the Festival.
Featured exhibitors at the inaugural See New England Festival include Six Flags New England, Santa’s Village, Kimball Farms, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Boston Attractions Group, Bay State Cruise Lines, Maine Beaches, Massachusetts Office of Tourism and Travel and much more.

Adding to the festival experience, See New England will also feature family-friendly musical performances. Performers at this year’s festival include American pop girl group Girl Authority, Boston’s finest disco and funk cover band Booty Vortex, singer/songwriter and touring musician Johnny Ray and the Ultrasonic Rock Orchestra performing A Night At the Rock Opera.
