Second Saturday is a celebratory day in Beacon, started in part by visionaries at BeaconArts and other folks in the early 2000s. Special events and art openings happen 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 and are always adding things! It's almost ready, so keep checking the website home page for the final lineup!

A Sneak Peek From Our Sponsor Partners:


On Saturday, Style Storehouse is having a Miles of Hope fundraiser at the store. Sasha Dobson will be singing live, and an acupuncturist will be there giving mini treatments and samples of apothecary. Also, there will be raffles and giveaways. Ten percent of sales will go to Miles of Hope.


Luxe Optique will be presenting their entire collection of Zero G Eyewear Saturday from 3 to 7 pm. Be sure to stop in to check out the whole line and get $60 off your purchase!
