2017 Gloucester Public Schools Annual Arts Festival

Gloucester Public School Arts Festival on May 13 to Feature Art and Performances from Every School in the District

The annual Citywide Arts Festival, a collaboration between the Gloucester Public School District and the Gloucester Education Foundation continues to grow with another extensive downtown event. This year’s festival will feature art and performances from children in every school in the Gloucester Public School District.

The Arts Festival takes place on Saturday, May 13 and is a showcase of student visual and performance art, including painting, ceramics, photography, woodworking, poetry, theater and music from every school in the district.

All are invited to participate in a collaborative art project that will take place from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm in the Sculpture Park across from the Cape Ann Museum.

A highlight of the festival will be the paintings and drawings by Gloucester’s own rising artists – students from the Gloucester Pre-School, the city’s five elementary schools, O’Maley Innovation Middle School and Gloucester High School – that will be displayed in downtown venues – City Hall, Sawyer Free Library, the Cape Ann Museum, and the Sculpture Park.

Can you spare a few hours a week for Generous Gardeners??

Honestly…I can’t get enough of the new views to be had on the Boulevard.  Last night I was stuck at the bridge and had to pull over to snap the Lannon floating by the flowers.   We have Generous Gardeners to thank for these gorgeous flowers!!   It takes a lot of hours and funds to make this happen and they are always looking for volunteers to give a helping hand.   You can put in as many or few hours as you have available and you don’t have to have a green thumb, they will show you what to do!  All you need is a love for your city and a few hours a week!!    Did you know that all of the tulips are still in pots and at the end of May they will be selling off the pots to raise funds for next year’s flowers so stay tuned!!   If you don’t have any extra time to volunteer, you can help out by buying a raffle ticket for an amazing trip to Amsterdam next year to see the original Holland Tulips!  Click here for more info on the raffle or Contact


Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week occurred a couple of weeks ago and my co-workers and I were b.e.y.o.n.d spoiled by our fabulous parent community.  Amongst so many other generous and amazing surprises (goodie bags, gift certificates, massages, raffle items, etc) were some delicious faculty luncheons.

One day lunch was delivered by b.good in Beverly.  While I find myself at the Dodge Street Plaza kind of often when running to the Paper Store, Modells, Staples, etc. I actually hadn’t tried b.good yet…but I’ll be going in the near future for sure.


The food was really terrific…and pretty to look at.  As if lunch on Monday wasn’t enough…Tuesday morning brought a Smoothie bar…also from b.good!



The Open Door Empty Bowl Dinner

Cape Ann Community

Join The Open Door for an evening of food and hospitality at the 17th Annual Empty Bowl Dinner and celebrate a beloved North Shore tradition on Thursday, May 11, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Cruiseport Gloucester.

The meal is simple—soup, bread and a cookie. Guests can choose and keep a special soup bowl created for this community event. The bowl goes home as an unspoken reminder that somewhere someone’s bowl is empty.

Tickets available at the door. $15 for adults and $10 for children under ten. Extra parking is available at Harbor Beach with complimentary trolley service to and from the event site.

Empty Bowl events are held nationally to generate awareness concerning hunger and to raise money for local hunger-relief programs. Proceeds from this event will benefit The Open Door Summer Meals and Mobile Market programs.
