Summer isn’t – technically – over yet, Worcester!

ThisWeekinWorcester.com has your list of five amazing events to spend your weekend. Whether you tune in for a virtual festival or travel to local stops around the city, you will surely have plenty of fun this weekend. Support your local community, get your blood pumping with some exercise, or admire an art exhibition to end the summer season. 

 

Appreciate the arts this weekend! 

This weekend, ArtsWorcester is holding member’s exhibition The Eighth One through November 8! 

This is their largest and loudest exhibit all year long and with plenty of opportunities to see the artwork of local artists, you can visit the exhibits over and over again! Artists are allowed to submit one piece of artwork of any theme to add to the exhibition. Artists can receive prizes for their artwork. 

Visitors are able to see the art Thursdays through Sundays from 12 PM to 5 PM. Only ten people are allowed in the gallery at once and all social distance regulations must be followed. 

 

Join a festival that is guaranteed to be “pawesome!”

Your pets will be wagging their tails for the 22nd Annual Pet Rock Festival. This event is usually held in North Grafton, but this year, you can be part of the fun online for their “fur-tual” event. 

The live stream takes place this Sunday from 12 PM to 3 PM on their Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. There will be interviews with animal welfare organizations, musical acts, and politicians discussing animal welfare legislation. 

Viewers can look forward to the per video contest online for a chance to win prizes from Ellie’s Pet Barn and John Paul Pet. 

 

Stretch out the stress from the week!
