The Second Saturday Guide Edition...Your full guide for the day/night is here!
This weekend is loaded with options! Here is your easy access to planning. These are weekend events pulled from some of A Little Beacon Blog's 10 Things To Do In Beacon Guides, so be sure to check them during the week.
Happy Second Saturday! Day: Saturday, November 12, 2016 Time: All day. Times different per event. Location: Beacon Get This Guide >
Second Saturday is a celebratory day in Beacon started in part by visionaries at BeaconArts and other folks in the early 2000s. Events and opportunities to see or make art occur throughout the day. Each month, A Little Beacon Blog complies a Guide of the art showings at galleries, stores, churches, outdoor events, and anywhere else where art is happening.
Because this Guide is new every month, we gather event information from newsletters, social media streams, and other sources, so we're constantly adding things! It's mostly ready by Friday, but keep checking the website home page for the final lineup!
