Every Other Year, One of June's Signature Events is the Newport to Bermuda Race Start.  (Photo by Muffy Aldrich,  SWNE archives.)
 A question for the community:

What public events are you looking forward to in July, August, and September that fall under the general purview of SWNE?

  1. We have a big beautiful town owned beach and picnic area. We are fortunate up here in the northwest corner. July 4 we celebrate with a lakeside reading of the Declaration of Independence, hot dogs and ice cream. The town band provides the entertainment.

  2. Tanglewood always has some great performances. Located in western Massachusetts, it is the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and I've seen concerts by wonderful musicians such as Yo-Yo Ma and John Williams there. One can also get tickets for their rehearsals, and it costs very little.

  5. Marblehead hosts the week long Festival of Arts June 30th to July 7th. Art exhibits, champagne reception, concerts, artisan market, church yard lobster rolls, fireworks.....it's a town wide party!

  9. These are very enjoyable on a breezy summer evening:
    Jazz on the Porch at the Pentagöet
    Jazz Trio on the porch of the Pentagoet Inn
    26 Main Street

    Late June-early October, 5:00pm-8:00pm. Reservations encouraged

    On Tuesday nights, Main Street Castine comes alive with Joel Mann’s “Night and Day Trio,” a jazz trio that comes to the porch of the Pentagöet Inn weekly during the peak summer months. Attracting music lovers from as far south as Portland, not to mention the world travelers of the inn, the porch fills up quickly. Sip on a cool craft cocktail or a chilled glass of wine from the inn’s pub and enjoy delectable farm-to-table Maine fare for supper. As dusk settles on our little seaside town, the tunes will transport you… you’ll never want to leave. Call for reservations (207-326-8616)—tables usually book up a week in advance!

  10. I must admit that I am envious of my Northern and North Eastern counterparts. Here in the eastern section of the former Republic of Texas, the excessive heat warnings started in late May (as early as I ever recall) and make outdoor activities a miserable affair. If you are going to visit the local Farmers Market or spend some time wandering about in one of quaint downtown area of our local cities, you must be prepared to be finished by 10 or 11 am. I miss the days of breezy afternoons at local festivals and events.
