We organize vibrant events that highlight local businesses, arts and culture, neighborhood beautification, and spur community engagement. Some of our signature events include:

UCMS Business Breakfast Annual Meeting

Our annual breakfast is where a variety of stakeholders and board members celebrate small business success in the district. It’s a great way to network, learn more about UCMS, and find ways to get involved.

Love Your Block

Every spring, we participate in a cleanup of the district. We collect trash, plant flowers, meet neighbors, and celebrate the beauty of the community. We end the day with food and laughter. This event is sponsored by the City of Boston.

Join us on May 13! For more information click here

UCMS Annual Meeting

In late spring, all of our supporters, residents, business owners, volunteers, and more come out to celebrate a year of success. This event provides highlights of our great work both present and future. We host a fun environment with a keynote speaker, live music, great food, and interactive activities. It’s a great opportunity to see where time and money are invested by all stakeholders.

Holiday Tree Lighting

People from all around the neighborhood wait for Santa and the Mayor of Boston to arrive via trolley and light the Christmas tree. We partner with neighborhood associations and businesses to handout gift bags to kids, serve food and drinks, and listen to live music. It’s an opportunity to see our vibrant and diverse community.

UP Market

The Up Market is a creative economic space that supports local artists and entrepreneurs. All products developed are professionally handmade. Read more to get info on becoming a vendor or hosting the Up Market.
