Sunset Picnics at Weir River Farm

Live music, local food, craft brews, and the South Shore’s best views

Starting June 22 and running every Thursday evening until September 28, the Sunset Picnic series will feature local breweries and food trucks, live music, and the best view on the South Shore. Pack your picnic blanket and chairs and relax with your friends while watching the sun set over the Boston skyline. Greet our iconic Belted Galloway cows as they graze in their pasture. And don’t forget to shop our farm store filled with delicious locally-sourced picnic supplies as well as Trustees-grown meat, dairy and beautiful produce.

Visit the Tickets Page for all the details including a full lineup of musical guests, food, and beer trucks.


July 6 and July 20 from 5PM to 6PM will be special Sensory Friendly Sunset Picnic Hours, providing a reduced number of guests and quieter sensory friendly environment. Any individual or family that would benefit from a limited capacity visit is welcome. At 6PM the Sunset Picnic will be open to additional guests and music will be played at a higher volume. Participants are welcome to stay past the sensory friendly hour to enjoy the Sunset Picnic longer! The event will conclude for all participants at sunset. Click here for tickets.

What if it rains? In the case of inclement weather, the day’s event will be canceled and tickets refunded. If we must cancel, an email will be sent by 3:30pm to ticket purchasers and an update posted to our social media pages.

Where do we park? Parking is on-site, in the Weir River Farm parking lot located at 140 Turkey Hill Drive, in Hingham. Some field parking may be available on busy nights.

Is this venue accessible? The picnic lawn is a flat, grassy field, accessible for most strollers and wheelchairs.

Where will we sit? There are a limited number of picnic tables available for guests to use, first come, first served. Please consider bringing your own chairs and picnic blankets.

May I bring my own food or drink? Food and beer trucks will be onsite for the evening. Guests may also bring their own picnics or purchase locally-sourced snacks from the Farm Store. Please consider bringing reusable plates or containers and taking your trash home to recycle/compost. We want this event to be as environmentally friendly as possible.

Will restrooms be available for guests?  Yes.

Are dogs allowed? Because this is a working farm, no dogs allowed, please. We hope to see your furry friends on one of our other Trustees properties this summer!

Is the barnyard open during the picnic? The barnyard will not be open during the picnic, though guests are welcome to arrive earlier to say hello to the barnyard animals. Guests may also wander down the “grassy chute” to visit the animals from outside the fence during the event.
