Save the date!
Sunday, Sept. 25 — stART on the Street, 11 a.m.-6 p.m., Park Avenue (between Highland and Pleasant streets) Wouldn’t you know it? stART on the Street doesn’t get to start on time; impending weather forced a false start, you could say, for the annual arts and crafts festival. So it starts on this, the rain date. (20 percent chance of precipitation, says the early forecast, FWIW.) One thing that for sure will be on the radar once stART gets started is, well, everything.
Performances reflecting, like, all the cultures. Music from Delta blues to new world soul to pop punk. Puppets, stilt walkers, acrobats. A food court packed with local favorites like Flying Rhino, Talyta’s Cafe, Anzio’s in Grafton, WooBerry, Chickpea. Oh, right, and all sorts of arts and crafts and creations from nearly 300 local artisans. Sounds like it’ll be worth the wait.
Tuesday, Sept. 20 — Idea Lab Speaker Series, 6-8 p.m., Worcester Idea Lab, 20 Franklin St. So, this is one of those times when the press release folks make it easy: “The Speakers Series connects successful entrepreneurs with business owners throughout Central Massachusetts to empower individuals with the tools and knowledge essential to driving their own innovation.” See, you already want to go, right? But wait — there’s more!
