Despite all taking place within six hours in Porter Square, the free Art City August: Community Film Festival coming Saturday is all over the place.
The citizen-run Art City organization said last month that it planned to turn each August weekend into free, themed, citywide arts events, and it’s happening.
The annual Taste of Cambridge, which brings together tastings of goods from more than 100 city food and drink sellers, is 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday.
Thanks to astute weather forecasters, people didn’t need to watch the whole show in rain – but they did get hit hard on their way home.
The traditional area Fourth of July Boston Pops concert starts at 8:30 p.m. Friday, even with threats of rain. What else is going on in town?
The event, including wine, hors d’oeuvres, “good conversation and great views of the Charles River” takes place at the Riverside Boat Club at Magazine Beach.
Thousands gathered Friday in front of City Hall, moving their bodies to music from 7 to 11 p.m. for the city’s free annual Dance Party.
A citizen-run group hopes to turn the entire month of August into an arts festival, and a city councillor wants to revive an ’80s-era tradition.
The city has identified the date of its next free annual Dance Party: June 27.
The seventh annual Fresh Pond Day is Saturday, a free, all-ages event run by the Cambridge Water Department to celebrate the land, water, wildlife and people at the Fresh Pond Reservation.
