Second Saturday is a celebratory day in Beacon started in part by visionaries at BeaconArts and other folks in the early 2000's. Events and opportunities 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 still adding things! It's almost ready, so keep checking the website home page for the final lineup!
