We’re Falling for the Arts in October!

BY DAWN | 21 September 2012

Here at the Square, we’re getting pretty excited about October. Not only because it’s a lovely Fall month on New England’s most awesome island. Not only because we’re ready for the ghoulish happenings of Halloween.

It’s because this year’s month-long Fall for the Arts celebration looks like a series of super-fun events!

Events kick off on September 28 and run through October 30, and include favorites like the Living Local Harvest Festival (September 29), the Art of Chocolate Festival (Oct 10-14), Vineyard Artisans Festivals in October and November, plus a series of gallery openings, gallery strolls, readings, speakers, exhibitions and more.

The island also is welcoming a couple fabulous NEW events, like the Creative Economy Speaker Series every Tuesday, and the Local Wild Food Challenge, (October 8), which is essentially a throw down to professional and amateur chefs, hunters and fisherman alike. Think you can whip up a stunning dish with wild ingredients? Click here to read about the events and click here to pre-register by email.
