All the Things You Need to Do this Weekend in Worcester

by | Aug 30, 2019 | Entertainment, Events, Headlines

WORCESTER – Lucky for us, this weekend is a little longer than most! I’m sure we’re all looking forward to relaxing after this week of back-to-school madness.

Have no fear – is here to point you in the right direction. Take a peek at our list of can’t-miss events and see if we haven’t found something for you.

Happy Labor Day, everyone, and here are five things you should not miss in the city over the next three days!

Canal District Farmers’ Market

We all know about this weekly celebration of local food, craft, and drink, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a can’t miss – and it is definitely a can’t-miss. Make your way to Crompton Collective at 138 Green Street between 9 AM and 12 PM this Saturday. If you’re a regular at the market, consider this your friendly reminder. If you’re not, make this your inaugural visit. Get there early and grab everything you need for your Labor Day barbecue.


Walking Tour of Worcester

Are you a new student in Worcester? Look no further than this walking tour, hosted by Student Affairs Worcester, to give you all the insight you need into this vibrant city. Not a student? No worries. You can still participate in this city deep-dive. Just meet at 10 Lincoln Square on Saturday at 12:30 PM to learn about all the best places to eat, drink, and shop as a college student in Worcester.

Sts. Anargyroi Greek Festival

This festival runs all weekend long at Sts. Anargyroi Greek Orthodox Church of Marlborough at 9 Central Street. It’s a little off the beaten path for Worcester residents, but with the promise of food, drink, live dance and live music, it seems worth the trip. Be there Sunday before you head home for your own Labor Day celebrations.


Hip Swayers

These musicians hail straight from the hills of Tatnuck, and their Americana cred is off the charts. Is there anything that screams “Labor Day!” louder than that? Dance and sing along when the Hip Swayers perform at Vincent’s, 49 Suffolk Street, this Monday night.


Dirty Gerund Poetry Show

Prefer something a little off-beat this Monday? Head to Ralph’s Diner at 9 PM for this weekly poetry show, always a hit with the local crowd. Ralph’s will serve food, drinks, and some great poets for those who dig the underground scene. If Labor Day isn’t your thing – this just might be.
