Summer Concert Series – Herring Cove: Wed, 6/28 – Sun, 9/3
This free concert series showcases local musicians every Wednesday and Sunday – all against the backdrop of a beautiful sunset. The Rip-It-Off’s kick-off the fun.

Friday Night Gallery Stroll: Each Friday night gallerys hold opening receptions for their new artists’ shows. It’s a wonderful way of experiencing Ptown’s Art Colony scene, socializing and meeting new friends. We post the list of show openings each week.
