2019 Fall Festival

October 1-3, 2019
in Boston’s Seaport

3 days. 50+ speakers. Infinite potential.

HubWeek’s fifth annual Fall Festival was a distillation of Boston’s brainpower: a concentrated dose of the city’s inventiveness, with none of its standoffishness.

Thousands of forward-thinking Bostonians came together to transform the Seaport into a mind-expanding celebration of art, science, and tech.


No reruns here. HubWeek 2019 was filled with original programming, heard-it-first-here moments, and maybe a mind-blow or two.
