The signature Boston Avenue festival in front of Central Middle School is free to enter.

Live music is planned every evening.

The event’s popular food features are each operated by local nonprofits, which use the weeklong gathering as one of their major fundraisers.

The anticipation ratcheted up last month with the naming of Mr. Nederland Kevin Hussey. It was also announced the 2022 Nederland Heritage Festival program is dedicated to Angie Beard.
