About Boston Kermesse

Greater Boston is home to many ethnic communities that create a kaleidoscope of cultural diversity, and Watertown is a microcosm of that diversity. Armenian immigrants who first settled in this area during the end of the 19th century are an integral part of this cultural mosaic. Today, over 50,000 Armenians are living throughout the Greater Boston area in towns such as Watertown, Belmont, Waltham, Arlington, Lexington, Cambridge, Brookline, Newton and Boston with an annual purchasing power of over one billion dollars.

Last year, the Armenian-American community hosted another incredibly successful large-scale weekend festival BOSTON KERMESSE: One Town - One Tent. The second open-air festival was held at the grounds of the Armenian Cultural and Educational Center and the adjacent Nichols Avenue in Watertown. The event showcased the historical, cultural, artistic and culinary treasures of the Armenian community. Over 6,000 guests from the Greater Boston area and beyond participated in the three-day event which garnered media coverage in local and national outlets including The Boston Globe, FOX25 News, The Boston Herald, CBS Boston, Watertown TAB and the Armenian Weekly.

This year, we invite you to join us as a partner to celebrate Watertown's diversity through this extraordinary event. This family oriented festival is organized by the Armenian Cultural and Educational Center (ACEC), a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational organization. The proceeds of this festival will help sustain the cultural and educational endeavors of the Center. The festival is expected to attract well over 6,000 people and will feature internationally renowned Armenian performers in the entertainment field.
