Riverfest, Somerville's 6th Assembly Row Festival

Come by to see, experience and taste Somerville's local flair at by Assembly Row

Boston's favorite food trucks will assemble for the 6th annual Riverfest on September 21st.

Somerville, Boston’s most hip neighborhood, is teeming with local artists and hot spots. On the 21st of September, everything local and hipster will be laid out for guests to enjoy at the annual Riverfest street festival. In its 6th year, Riverfest returns bigger and better than ever as it joins ASSEMBLED - The Handmade Arts Market at Assmebly row.

From 11-9 p.m. on the 21st, all are welcome to take part in the many festivities that will be going on throughout the day. Alongside Etsy Arts Market featuring a plethora of handmade crafts, live music and kids activities, perhaps one of the most exciting installments will be the presence of most of Boston’s favorite food trucks.

Bon Me, Grilled Cheese Nation, Boston Super Dog, Frozen Hoagies and Lobstah Love are only a few of the yummy trucks you have to look forward to.

Come for a snack, a meal or the whole day and finish the whole thing off with fireworks over the Mystic River at 8 p.m. No tickets required! For more information, visit their website.

This past Saturday the all-day celebration, in partnership with The City of Somerville and the Department of Conservation and Recreation, included live music from local bands, 20 local artisans, free children’s activities, roaming entertainment, a sidewalk sale, and a fireworks show over the Mystic River. Riverfest ran from noon – 8 p.m. at Baxter Riverfront Park and throughout the Assembly neighborhood.

“Celebrations like Riverfest unify our city and bring visitors from all over the region to support our local businesses and enjoy what makes Somerville so special,” said Mayor Joe Curtatone. “We’re thankful for Assembly Row’s partnership in bringing this celebration to life each year. This celebration of our newest neighborhood and our waterfront continues to get bigger and better.”
Retailers throughout the neighborhood featured fall fashion items during the sidewalk sale and will offer special promotions for Riverfest. Local nonprofits also set up community tables to provide information about their organizations.
“Riverfest is one of Federal Realty’s favorite events at Assembly Row. It truly represents the mission of our new Somerville neighborhood by bringing together families, artists and musicians,” said Matt Ehrie, vice president and general manager of Assembly Row. “It is incredible to see the people of Somerville bring Baxter Park and the neighborhood to life during Riverfest.”


Boston Super Dog has won Best Hot Dog by “Best of Boston 2012” and also earned the title of “America’s Top Dog” by Wall Street Journal, making it a must-taste on the lists of travelers visiting Boston.

What makes the Super Dog king of the wieners?

The toppings naturally set it apart, but Boston Super Dogs are also soaked in an apple cider and brown sugar marinade, giving the meat a unique flavor.


Nine-plus things to do this weekend: Sept. 9-11

Annual Italian Feast of Saints Cosmas and Damian all weekend long at Warren and Cambridge streets, in the Wellington-Harrington neighborhood. Free.

The weekend starts with a bang with this 90th annual family-friendly feast, which includes free performances by recording artists such as Tony Orlando, The Village People, The Platters and many more, along with rides, games, a food festival (with cooking demonstrations by local chefs), eating contests and parades. Information is here.

Boston Comedy Arts Festival all weekend long at ImprovBoston, 40 Prospect St., Central Square, and Cambridge Main Library, 449 Broadway, in Mid-Cambridge. Most shows are between $18 and $25, but there are a few on the schedule that are free, $5, $10 or $14.

Now in its eighth year, this five-day festival (running since Wednesday) showcases improv, standup, sketch, music, variety acts and everything in between, even throwing in workshops and networking for the pros who’ve come to learn – or show off. Kevin McDonald from The Kids in the Hall returns, as do stand-ups Jenny Zigrino (“Bad Santa 2”) and Aparna Nancherla (“Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell”). Information is here.

Somerville Toy Camera Festival with an opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at The Nave Gallery Annex, 53 Chester St., Davis Square, Somerville. Free.

Taking place at the Nave Annex, Brickbottom Gallery, and Washington Street Gallery, this is among the largest toy camera festivals in the world. Local, national and international photographers are highlighted for their skills using low-tech tools to create high art. The juried exhibition is up through Oct. 1, but the opening reception may be the best way to dive into this fourth year of lo-fi imagery. Information is here.

Walter Sickert & The Army of Broken Toys from 8 p.m. to midnight Friday at The Sinclair, 52 Church St., Harvard Square. Tickets are $15.

Local performance art rock favorites Walter Sickert & The Army of Broken Toys appear behind their new album, “Come Black Magic” with openers Ruby Rose Fox and Mount Peru. Seeing Walter Sickert & The Army of Broken Toys live should be on the to-do list of every resident of Greater Boston, a rite somewhere between a “Rocky Horror Picture Show” screening, circus sideshow and cult ceremony (but the music is better). Information is here.

The Poetry Brothel from 8 p.m. to midnight Friday at Oberon, 2 Arrow St., Harvard Square. Tickets are $30.

Set up as a decadent fin de siècle brothel like those of New Orleans, Paris and Buenos Aires that functioned as safe havens for fledgling, avant-garde artists, Oberon hosts poets performing as part of an immersive cabaret with live music, burlesque, vaudeville, aerialist, fortune tellers, painters and other acts. The production, by the visiting Poetry Society of New York, promises one-on-one poetry readings in back rooms as well for a small fee, all of the poets are available for these sequestered readings at any time during the event, making words as subversive and sexy as those other acts hosted by brothels. This Boston premiere includes guest readers Robert Pinsky and Steph Burt, burlesque beauty Ginny Nightshade and house band Hounds On An Island, led by Sara Honeywell. Information is here.

The Boston Festival of Indie Games from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Building W34, also known as the Johnson Athletics Center, 120 Vassar St., in the MIT/Area II neighborhood. Tickets are $15.

Love games? Bored with the ones you have? Come look at the ones you might not be able to get yet – or ever. This fifth annual family-friendly event encourages attendees to share and interact with various kinds of games, including video and tabletop, as well as to attend talks, panels and workshops on indie-game development and the future of the game industry (and don’t miss the Boffer fighting and Quidditch exhibition games at 10 a.m.). “The games featured at the annual festival are innovative and refreshing, demonstrating both the budding and the established talent of game makers in the American Northeast,” organizers of the nonprofit event say. The annual Figgies Awards Show ends the day starting at 6:15 p.m. Information is here.

“db” from 7 to 8 p.m. Saturday (tickets are $10, or $11.34 with the online service fee) and Becky’s #HashTagTeam Slumber Party from 9 p.m. to midnight (tickets are $15 for this 21-plus show) at the Davis Square Theatre, 255 Elm St., Somerville.

See what all the fuss was about at the Providence Fringe Festival as the Strange News theater company brings its hourlong dive into the D.B. Cooper phenomenon to town. Who was D.B. Cooper? Exactly – the hijacker dove out of an airplane with $200,000 in 1971 and hasn’t been heard from since. That leaves him a mystery open to some examination in a series of surreal vignettes. Information is here.

The Federation of Belligerent Writers pits writers against each other in bracketed events where they have three to five minutes to write anything they want based on three randomly chosen words, then perform them to win audience approval, with the writer advancing. This time the writing is done in teams, and members of the winning team will face each other in the final round. Expect a lot of yelling and perhaps some throwing of things and people in costumes and/or speedos. Information is here.

Somerville Rock and Roll Yard Sale from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday on Union Square Plaza, 90 Union Square, Somerville. Free.

What Cheer? Records of Providence, R.I., has been putting on its Rock And Roll Yard Sales for more than a decade featuring local, independent sellers offering up a quirky and unique mix of primarily vinyl records and music-related stuff, as well as vintage goods and handmade items. Some of New England’s best record sellers will be on hand with piles and crates of vinyl to dig through, including LPs, 45s, 78s and CDs, cassettes, eight-tracks, music and audio gear and other music memorabilia, making for a perfect way to find one-of-a-kind items and support DIY and independent, small businesses. The event includes live music from Narc Virus, Mystery Red Inferno and Allysen Callery, and a DJ will spin vinyl. Information is here.

Cambridge Carnival from noon to 7 p.m. Sunday in Kendall Square. Free.

The 24th Annual Cambridge Carnival International Festival and Parade arrives in its usual spectacular fashion, now with an extra hour of celebration. It starts in Central Square with a parade along Massachusetts Avenue and up Main Street to Kendall Square, where the Caribbean/African-themed carnival is home to dazzling handmade costumes accompanied by the music of DJs and bands playing world music, Haitian roots, reggae and Soca. A variety of savory foods will be for sale, and there’s plenty for kids to do, most free. The carnival has drawn crowds of up to 100,000 people. Information is here.

There’s no better combo than Fluff and Teddie’s peanut butter, made right across the Mystic River in Everett — site of the second annual Everett Village Fest. The festival highlights the neighborhood’s craft breweries and distilleries plus food trucks and a full day of musical performances, headlined by the legendary George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic.

The biggest celebration of independent tabletop and video games in New England promises an inclusive, welcoming environment filled with family-friendly activities and games of all sorts that you won’t see anywhere else.


Comments

We need a Hipster French Toast Alert System

Irony has been cancelled in it's very home.

No Fluff Festival, no Honk!

Four dollar donuts in Union Square weep, as hipster pork pie hats are reworked into mandatory face coverings all through Davis.

This comment deserves it

OK Alanis

No. But what is ironic is when some old dude mistakenly labels something "irony", but instead only shows that said old dude doesn't know what the word means.

Relieved to hear this

2020 is gonna be a washout anyway, and I appreciate that Somerville is being honest and up-front about it instead of "let's take this like a week at a time and drag it out" (the Baker approach) or "Yay we won already cause I defeated it" (the Trump approach).

A week at a time, I wish!

A week at a time, I wish! Baker just extended the essential only order 24 hours. And he wont say what happens then, he wants to announce it and it to happen all at once. So those of us who work in non-essential may have less than a day to find out and return to work. Businesses have less than a day to prepare if they find out they can open. He played this game with the olympics, bravely waiting till after Boston pulled out to announce his stance. This is much more serious.

Highly doubt restrictions are lifted tomorrow

The order was set to expire tomorrow so it had to be extended 24 hours to provide time for the official announcement of new rules.

Easy enough to predict these extensions

Just pay attention to the data - just like the governor does. For a non-epidemiologist, the guy really does get it.

IF the deaths and cases and hospitalizations all rise, the order gets extended.

If they don't drop for a time and just hold or bounce up and down, the current status gets extended.

If they consistently drop for a period of time, things start to slow open. If there is a slow open and they spike back, we close down again.

Except for the Epedemiologists saying the opposite

John Ioannidis, David Katz, Knut Wittowski, Johan Geseinke. all excellent epedemiologists saying the exact opposite. Im not sure where so many peopke are getting data, but it looks like pharma sponsored MSM. Sweden is faring better than MA with zero lockdown and schools open. Im not sure why anyone thinks that crowding more peopke into fewer stores makes any bit of sense on how to tackle this thing, but its truly amazing to view how fast people climb on board bad data. Unfortunately, most of you are your own worst enemies, causing deaths through economic fallout. The UN just released a report predicting hundreds of thousands of infant deaths due to economic problems, and 60 million CHILDREN put into extreme poverty. So many brainless people trying to tie this to politics. I hope everyone remembers where they stood on this issue 6 months or a year from now.

Yeah, Sweden's great, as long as you ignore all the dead people

And I realize that the Republican Party has become a death cult that no longer cares how many people die, but, even with that:

In Stockholm, where the virus spread through migrant communities, more than twice the usual number of people died last month. That increase far surpasses the rise in deaths in American cities like Boston and Chicago, and approaches the increase seen in Paris.

Also, unlike many Americans, Swedes are smart enough to have voluntarily done many of the same things we're supposed to do here, without turning face masks into a political issue:

Instead of imposing strict lockdowns, public health officials said that Swedes could be relied on to go out less and follow sanitation guidelines. That proved to be true: As a whole, Swedes visited restaurants, retail shops and other recreation spots almost as little as residents of neighboring countries, according to Google mobility figures.

Finally, unlike much of the US, Sweden has a well functioning public-health and hospital system.

Absurd to call me Republican

For one..Im not even close to Republican. Secondly, bringing politics into science just makes people look like they dont appreciate science. The data is excellent on Sweden. They even go so far as to report numbers dying with Covid(where covid is present but not necessarily causing the death) and from covid(where death was actually caused by covid) the numbers you see, and generally reported are the "with Covid", despite being higher in total by around 1,000 deaths. Denmark and Norway are both half the popukation of Sweden and only report "from Covid" numbers. There statistics are far more similar than people like to admit. Lastly, any possible way you slice the data, Sweden is doing FAR better than MA. More immunity, fewer deaths, kids being educated, way fewer unemployed, less lical and federal funds being eroded, less rent and mortgage defaults. The WHO has lauded Sweden for their ability to achieve these results without lockdown. Everyone is now beciming the Swedish model..cant you see that. Its not a matter of if, its a matter of when. The death cult members are the moronic who believe you can take the never before attempted step of shutting down an economy and believe this can magically happen without repercussions. THAT CAUSES DEATHS. More than this virus ever will. 1 in 4 restaurants predicted to shutter..bankruptcies, mortgage defaults, plummeting real estate prices are all waiting right around the corner. Wake up and smell the depression if you can pull yourselves away from CNN's fear mongering about a virus killing the unhealthiest 1%. Stat of the day..if you are under 65, you had a better chance being killed by the flu this year than Covid 19.

Check your sources, please!

Wittowski is not an epidemiologist - he's a computer guy. Several others you mentioned are not public health trained, either. They may have some association with medicine, but that isn't the same as public health.

They are hacks trying to find excuses to "sound sciency" and explain away things that are inconvenient to their forturnes. Put them in your drawer of "scientists" who deny climate change - a bunch of people with some science background pretending to know things that 99 percent of their peers don't.

I am an epidemiologist. I follow these things. I can tell who knows what they are talking about, and who is an economist pretending to possess or discover some knowledge that somehow got missed in 200 years of the profession. Follow the money, honey.

Sweden made a bet using chips we don't have. They ran the same models, noticed that their healthy population and sound health and social welfare support system bought them some slack, and took a gamble on that. Why did they fail so badly? They didn't know (nobody knew, really) the extent of the role of superspreaders - asymptomatic people who go about their business and spread virus like Johnny Appleseed.

And yes, THEY FAILED. The bodies are piling up. Massively bigger impact than the surrounding countries with similar populations. 10x the death rate of Norway, which had the same social support and health status advantages. It is also doubtful that they spared their economy any pain given the impacts of that death toll.

And, again, the US NEVER could have done this. We have the shittiest health outcomes in the "wealthy" world, and shit for social welfare supports.

Why so negative?

I really disagree and dont knownwhy you need to cancel now unless there is intense planning and money being spent for something. People seem a bit unwillingvto accept the science that this thing is running its course. It seems Boston is already in the neighborhood of 10% immunity, which shoukd already get the transmission rate below 1. That combined with warm weather and I would imagine we will see very few new cases by mid June. The charts are almost identical to other respiratory viruses in their spread and decrease. this one, however seems partucularly dangerous to those above the years of t-cell production, and the fact that it was novel was certainly scary at the beginning. The media fear mongering has been insane for this thing, though. Our schools should be open right now and the healthy should be at work, and the at risk should be quarantined. We cannot run a functioning society this way..This is the first time in history we have quarantined the healthy.
