The Esplanade Association tweeted Thursday that the City of Boston and Mayor Marty Walsh have unveiled plans for the inaugural Open Charles Street. All five blocks of the Beacon Hill road will be pedestrian-only from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 22.

The event will be put on with the support of the Beacon Hill Civic Association and the Beacon Hill Business Association. It also coincides with the BHCA’s Fall Fest, which will take place on Mt. Vernon Street the same day. The festival’s activities include architectural tours, arts and crafts, a dog show, a farmer’s market, live music, and a used book sale.
