Happenings at Central Square

The first of three outdoor Makers’ Markets featuring Music on the Lawn will take place this Saturday, June 25.

There will also be concessions, handcrafted art and goods for sale, and more! See ad below for additional details.

Food for Thought

“Rural arts organizations draw nonlocal audiences at higher rates than do urban arts. In other words, rural arts organizations report that 31 percent of their audience travels ‘beyond a reasonable distance’ to attend events, while the corresponding share that urban organizations report is 19 percent.” ~Rural Action Guide for Governors and States
