free

Come feast your eyes, ears, and taste buds! The Dallin Museum will host the Creek River String Band in Whittemore Park (in front of the museum) for a fun evening of music, art, and friends. The Museum’s galleries will be open extended hours ($5 donation requested; free to museum members) and the band performance is free and open to the public! Pack a picnic snack and a blanket, bring your family, invite a friend, and spend a beautiful summer evening with us in Arlington Center. Soft drinks and popcorn will be available.

The Creek River String Band is a six-piece acoustic band featuring guitar, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, accordion, and bass with three voices balancing out the strings and bellows. The band delivers an energetic and eclectic mix of bluegrass, country, folk, old-time, Tex-Mex, Celtic, blues and rock–something for everyone! Visit their website and have a listen, www.creekriverstringband.com.

The pop up art installation, Chairful Where You Sit, will be on view in the park that weekend. Chairful is a temporary outdoor art exhibit featuring re-imagined chairs designed by local artists and residents. The sale of the chairs supports Arlington Public Art’s programs and events.
