Easter is upon us and that means gathering together with family. As is the case with many holidays, some folks may want to celebrate not just with food but with accompanying alcoholic beverages.

Can You Buy and/or Sell Alcohol on Easter Sunday in Massachusetts?

If you are hoping to purchase alcohol on Easter Sunday in Massachusetts, you are in luck. According to an article that was published by Black Tail NYC in 2022 they reported the following:

 A report from WBUR states. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is allowing liquor stores to open at 10 a.m. as part of its blue laws. You do not need special permission from local authorities to sell alcohol on Sundays – instead of noon.

10 a.m. and after is the time that alcohol can be sold and purchased on most Sundays in Massachusetts and Easter is no different. In addition, Mass.gov has a list of holidays where the sale of alcohol is prohibited in Massachusetts and Easter is not on that list.
