Second Saturday

Saturday, August 11th, 2018

Second Saturday is a city-wide celebration of the arts held on the second Saturday of every month. Special events, art gallery openings, artist receptions and culinary tastings. Many galleries and shops stay open until 9pm. It's kid friendly and a great way to take the pulse of Beacon.
