There’s plenty going on in events and even Halloween-style dining throughout Cambridge and Somerville from now through Oct. 31, ranging from free art and films to an $85 four-course holiday-themed tasting menu.
As though to distract from all the food, the annual Party Under the Harvest Moon has celebrities as well: Ray Magliozzi of “Car Talk”; Robin Young, host of WBUR’s “Here and Now”; and Rick Jenkins, comic and host of The Comedy Studio in Harvard Square.
The 10th annual Honk! Festival of Activist Street Bands comes Oct. 9-11, but entered this weekend with a nail-biting countdown as well as a list of firsts for the constantly expanding event. A Kickstarter campaign has $3,000 to go before all 28 bands can participate.
Cambridge’s free annual dance party has taken place every year since 1996, yet every year its exuberance – if not its very existence – takes people by surprise.
The “river” part of the 36th annual Cambridge Arts River Festival is more conceptual than literal this year, but it still brings a steady stream of entertainment, cuisine and community along Massachusetts Avenue in the Central Square Cultural District.
Fresh Pond Reservation, which protects the city’s drinking water supply, is critical wildlife habitat and provides Cantabrigians with green recreation space, gets its eighth annual Fresh Pond Day from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 30.
A first – and free – family disco is coming Sunday, but because this is Cambridge there’s more than mirrored balls and 1970s-era samples and spins to be found at The Middle East Downstairs.
People who love to sing (and ideally do it well) should know there are a few slots left for adults to audition for this year’s “Christmas Revels” show at Harvard University’s Sanders Theatre, and many more slots available for kids.
Lesley University’s free daylong Culture Fest 2015 has authentic Native American wares for sale, Native American cuisine, a screening and discussion of the film “Winter in the Blood” and performances by Cheyenne and Plimoth Plantation Wampanoags.
Details for the city’s first We Overcame Winter celebration were released Thursday as forecasts promised a Sunday hitting 60 degrees or higher.
