Plan family fun around the Worcester area or easily found on your phone! Join in on local bashes or focus on your mental health with all kinds of great opportunities this weekend. 


The “pawfect" event for you is taking place this Saturday! 

Show your support for your local furry friends by joining the Animal Rescue League for their Kitten Shower

Similar to a baby shower, you will have the opportunity to gift necessary items to cat parents. 

From 12 PM to 2 PM, donate supplies to the rescue league in their drive through or contribute to the cause through Facebook where they will be posting photos of adoptable cats and shirts for sale. With more than 50 kittens currently in foster care, your donation will be greatly appreciated! 


Breathe in fresh air this weekend! 

Get outdoors and celebrate nature this Saturday. Join Meadowbrook Orchards in Sterling this Saturday from 12 PM to 6 PM for their first annual Apple Blossom Festival

After enjoying a fun day with the family, stop by their bakery for sweet treats. 


Hold up your boomboxes!

Relive the nostalgia of the 70s and 80s this Saturday night from 8:30 PM to 12 AM at Greendale's Pub in Worcester. 

Dance the night away at their After COVID: Boombox at Greendale's event. The band and lead singer, Dan Gorman, will be dressed in their best decade garb and they will be playing the music you love. Following vivid requirements, the pub will be open to 50 percent capacity and masks are required. The cover charge is $10 and they will be serving up delicious food. 


Meditate with poetry this Saturday

Tune into a virtual event hosted by The Emily Dickinson Museum Dickinson to appreciate the famous poet's art. This Saturday from 11:30 PM to 12 :30 PM, commemorate the day of Dickinson's death by taking a virtual stroll through her beloved city, Amherst.
