The Cambridge College Fall Festival is a wonderful opportunity for the entire community to come together, enjoy the campus, connect with one another, and learn about the college’s new programs and initiatives. This year, the robust program includes information on students’ and alumni’s new projects and businesses as part of the Alumni and Student Showcase, activities sponsored by the college’s various departments, and fun games (with prizes) for the whole family. In addition, there will be food trucks so that everyone can partake in some great food.

Getting Here


Please note that attendees should use the north entrance to Hood Park (500 Rutherford Ave). If using GPS or a mapping tool, please note that such directions often take drivers past the actual entrance. When traveling south on Rutherford Ave, be sure to turn right at the first or second driveway after the rotary (look for the Cambridge College sign). If you go past the entrance, take the next right and then turn right again into the Hood Park parking lot so that you can double back to the north entrance.


Free on-site parking will be available in the lot located near the Hood Park smokestack. Please park toward the back of the lot.

Public transportation

The MBTA Sullivan Square T Station (on the Orange Line) is located just a block away. When coming out of the T station, walk across Cambridge Street to Spice Street, then walk through the gate and across the parking lot to reach the building’s entrance.

Uber or Lyft

Please tell the driver that the address of the Hood Plant is 500 Rutherford Ave, Boston, MA 02129. Your driver may know this address as part of Charlestown, not Boston.
