Newton Cultural Alliance | Highlights Arts & Culture | Things To Do |

*On Wednesday, August 18th at 6:30 p.m. the Newton Free Library will celebrate the end of the Tails & Tales summer reading program with a Minute To Win It event.  The idea is to complete challenges in under a minute using simple, everyday items.  This social event is for tweens and teens entering grades 6-12.  Please meet in the Teen Area to head outside for fun and ice cream.  Take a “minute” to check the details here.

*Visit the Hyde Community Center Bandstand on Friday, August 20th at 6:00 p.m. for Legit Band, a superb eight-piece band with a full horn section.  Dance to modern-day music or enjoy the romance of the days of Sinatra and Basie.  At Dusk catch the classic thriller Jaws, filmed right here in our very own Cape Cod.  There are still a few more Hyde “catch of the days” to come -check them out here.

*The City of Newton’s Office of Cultural Development hosts the Summer Music Series featuring folk-rock melodies, blues guitar muscle, and rock and roll grit by The DayBreakers on Sunday, August 22nd at 6:00 p.m. at the Newton Centre Bowl.  Join your friends and neighbors for some live local music right here in Newton. Check out the calendar for directions and weather information.

*Join NewTV for the end-of-summer Cones ‘n Cars on August 25th at 5:00 p.m. Dust off your saddle shoes and iron the poodle skirt for a 1950s-themed ice cream social and classic car show.  Enjoy a scoop or two from Cabot’s and the RCN Ice Cream Truck, or try some baked goods while you peruse some souped-up rods provided by the Boston Cup Classic Car Show. Register here to attend this free event.

*The Newton Cultural Alliance is looking for vendors for 2021 Celebrate Newton Holiday Craft Fair to be held on Sunday, December 5th.  A local favorite since 2003, the craft fair features quality handmade items from more than 50 local artisans. Review exhibitor guidelines and apply here.
