Après Ski Festival

Après Ski Festival

This winter, step inside a cheerful Italian ski resort without leaving Boston at our Après Ski Festival on Thursdays — now extended through February!

Modeled after indulgent post-skiing festivities in Italy (essentially a lot of eating and drinking!), the weekly festival has all the hearty food, festive drinks, and live music to warm you up on even the coldest of days — even if you didn't spend hours on the slopes!

Festival-goers will sip beer, wine, and other cold-weather favorites, such as vin brulé (a warm mulled wine from Piemonte) and Bombardino (an eggnog-based drink with brandy, whipped cream, and cinnamon). The comforting food is inspired by Italian Alps fare, like rich polenta, rustic housemade sausage, and savory cheese and meat pairings. And we didn't forget those sweet tooths out there! Get ready for cannoli, rich melted chocolate, and more.

Come escape the elements, mingle with friends, jam out to our live DJ, and feast on seasonal Italian favorites at our cozy winter retreat! Find us on the second-floor mezzanine, just past the escalators at the Boylston Street doors, from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Entrance is open to all; food and drink ($5) tickets will be available at the door. Or plan ahead, and get a ticket bundle today for just $35 (includes eight tickets that will get you about two drinks and three food offerings)!
