[ARCHIVED] Malden Gaming District Celebrates Final Festival of 2022

Summer Festival

The City of Malden will be holding the final Summer Festival on Saturday, August 13th. Taking place between 12-4 PM in Malden Center, Pleasant and Exchange Streets will transform into an open-air market that features artists and artisans, vintage clothing stores, a farmers’ market, and much more. The main stage located on the corner of Washington and Pleasant Streets — the line-up for August 13th features a musically diverse mix of bands. 

In a new annual tradition, the final Summer Festival will feature the Big Rig Charity Gig put on by Total Performance Sports of Malden between 12-2 PM with 100% of the entry fees getting donated to The Claddagh Fund and the Bread of Life. The event, commonly referred to as a “Truck Pull” features professionals and amateurs pulling a 16,000 lb. vehicle. With minimal coaching, anyone can give it a try. Few can forget the site of Sparky the Clown pulling a truck while on a unicycle! 

In addition, August 13th will also be the date of the next Murder at the Malden Bank Pub Crawl. With three straight sell outs, this one-of-a-kind interactive game has proven to be a genuine crowd pleaser! Based upon the actual locations from the first bank robbery murder in the United States, the easy 17-minute walk takes you to multiple dining and drinking establishments connected to the murder of a member of the esteemed Converse family. At each location you will encounter interesting characters who will present you with challenges and puzzles to unlock the mystery behind the 1863 murder. Visit www.MaldenGamingDistrict.com for tickets and more information.

 Located next to the Malden Center MBTA Orange Line station, the area is also home to Malden’s Gaming District. This is the place to go if you want to quest at Boda Borg, conduct a science experiment that is a lot like mini golf, play and stock up on Magic cards, shoot some billiards, try a racing simulator or sing your heart out at Karaoke. Easily accessible by Orange Line, but FREE Parking is available at both City garages at 170 Centre Street and 7 Jackson Street. These events are sponsored by the Office of Mayor Gary Christenson.
