Holiday Arts And Eats Festival Coming to Somerville
Assembly Row will host a weekend full of festive food trucks and artsy crafts
The Bacon Truck
With the month of December officially underway, the holiday season is ripe upon us and you know what that means! Holiday shopping...
Always an exhausting and oftentimes stressful endeavor, the first ever Assembly Row Holiday Arts and Eats Festival this weekend (December 6, 7, 8) in Somerville provides for an experience everyone can enjoy.
Holiday shopping can work up a mean appetite, but don't worry, Assembly Row has you covered with an impressive participating list of Food Trucks including Boston faves Bon Me, Pennypackers and Frozen hoagies (with a newly developed cold weather menu of course) and newcomers like The Bacon Truck, you won't have to worry about losing fuel.
Kicking things off on Friday evening will be the Holiday Arts and Eats After Dark; an adult version of what will continue during the daytime hours on Saturday Sunday. From 6-10 pm on Friday, guests 21 + can expect live music, beer, mulled wine and all sorts of festive fancies to really get you in the spirit. Tickets are 10 dollars and yes, the Food trucks will be out and serving up delicious foodie options.
On both Saturday and Sunday mornings from 11-noon, a VIP ticket option is available for 15 dollars which will allow guests to peruse the vendors and hit up the trucks ahead of the crowds. Standing in line is after all, overrated...especially in the winter months.
The fun continues all throughout the day however, and for a mere five dollar entry fee, you can spend the day enjoying live entertainment (you won't want to miss the featured appearance of Redline, one of Boston's most dynamic a capella groups, Sunday morning at 11 am), crafty vendors from Etsy and a plethora of activities for the kids - and fun loving adults alike!
Whether you stop by for a snack, or stay the whole day, some part of your weekend will want to have this festival written all over it. I can't think of a better way to really get into the holiday cheer.
