Before we head into your weekend happenings below, we’d like to take a moment to offer up a special thanks to the Holgate Library for hosting their annual Lunar New Year celebration. If you missed it, just click on the slideshow!
Welcome the The Second Annual 2 day “Winter Blues” Music Festival to Foster Road’s Bobwhite Theatre featuring 13 blues, rock, and zydeco bands. Food, drinks, doors at 3:30.
If just one blues band will do you, Gemini has Patrick Dull & the Bridgetown Blues in the house.
Maybe behind the mic is more your style? Join the friendly crowd down at Dusty’s Karaoke every Friday night with an early 8pm start.
Or meet up with Capoeira Angola Palmares of FoPo who host many classes in the area, including a Friday class at Foster Fitness 7-8:45pm. Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art and dance in which two players dance together in a circle, alternating attack and defense, in a fluid movement to traditional instruments and singing Portuguese lyrics. Wow, who knew? Add it your regular Foster Road Friday!
Do you dream of pocket parks, urban orchards, or alley gardens? If yes, you’ll definitely want to register for Southeast Uplift’s Sustainability Workshop: Greenspace & Working with the city. You will hear how unique projects were accomplished from the urban innovators themselves!
If you’d like to learn more about this year’s FoPo Garden Tour taking place Saturday June 15th, garden host veterans will be at the Lily Day Cafe from 9:30-11:30 to answer questions and sign up volunteers.
Pageturners returns to the Holgate Library with the annual Everybody Reads community wide book discussion. This year features Sherman Alexie’s short story collection Ten Little Indians.
It’s Chick Day at Birds & Bees Nursery, as if baby chicks aren’t enough, there will be free crafts and snacks too. Or register for Miniature Gardens at Dennis 7 Dees and delight your backyard faeries.
Foster Art Night is back! A brave group art loving enthusiasts engage in an epic journey down Foster every 3rd Saturday, taking in the creative inspirations and cocktails along the route.
