Visitors’ Day and “Missed the Boat”
at Boston Harbor Scottish Fiddle School

Tuesday, August 15 and Wednesday, August 16, 2017

Thompson Island, Boston Harbor, Massachusetts

Visit friends and family attending the camp, explore the island, and enjoy dance and jam sessions and a world-class concert by our Fiddle School teachers on Boston Harbor Scottish Fiddle School Visitors’ Day. All are invited to spend this delightful afternoon and evening on Thompson Island.

The fee covers round-trip ferry service, the sessions and concert, and a hotdog/hamburger/chicken or vegetarian burger cookout with cash bar. If you play an instrument, bring it along for the jam session!

Visitors take the 2:30 pm ferry from the Thompson Island ferry dock in South Boston (near Summer Street, the Design Center, and the Black Falcon Cruise Terminal), arriving at the island at 3 pm. Parking is available near the South Boston dock. The ferry back leaves the island at 9 pm, arriving in South Boston at 9:30 pm.

For an additional $100 you can stay overnight on the island - participate in the late night sessions after the rest of the visitors have gone back, spend the night in your own private room, audit classes in the morning, enjoy breakfast and lunch with your island buddies, and catch the early afternoon boat back to the mainland on Wednesday.
