*Newton’s Second Annual Bakery Crawl takes place on Friday- Saturday, September 29-30th All Over Newton! Lovers of baked goods can map out their routes, and explore and sample diverse baked items produced by Newton’s talented chefs while supporting some of the city’s smallest eateries. The Newton Bakery Crawl is a free two-day long, do-it-yourself event. Make sure to check out the NCA member, Scandinavian Cultural Center’s coffee shop, Kaffestugan. When visiting bakeries “crawlers” should mention they’re participants to take advantage of each bakery’s special promotion, whether it’s a free sample, special item, or savings discount.
*Immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of Icelandic legend as you search for fairies at The Scandinavian Cultural Center on Saturday, September 30, 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. This is an enchanting adventure inspired by the world of Huldufólk, Iceland’s elusive and magical hidden folk. Discover interactive dwellings, listen to ethereal music, shop local vendors, and join in the fun by wearing a costume and taking a picture in our photo spots. Reserve your tickets for this magical fairy adventure here.
*Get your tickets for Newton Nomadic Theater’s The Village Cidiot before they sell out. For 2 nights only Friday-Saturday, October 6-7th at 7:30 p.m. NNT performs at The Allen Center. When a lifelong New York City couple gets laid off from their jobs, they pack up everything and move to a tiny village in the Berkshires. They discover that the locals call them and the other transplanted New Yorkers “Cidiots.” Don’t be a “Cidiot” and get your tickets now.
