Things that are awesome Friday – UTEC Fresh Roots & The Lowell Folk Festival!


UTEC Fresh Roots Baked Goods CSA - Week Two - Tweed Squares

# 1.  Week two of our UTEC Fresh Roots CSA – Tweed Squares. Have I ever heard of a Tweed Square? No. Do I know what one is? No. Do I care? Not at all, they are delicious!

Day 281 - Friday, July 27th 2007

#2. The Lowell Folk Festival!!! The largest free folk festival in the country and my absolute favorite weekend of the summer. Music, food, fun, friends, crafts – it’s a blast!

This weekend, downtown Lowell turns into one great big party full of music from all over the world, including some of my personal faves – bluegrass, polka, zydeco, old time New England barn dances, blues, New Orleans jazz, Puerto Rican cuatro – the list goes on…

There’s also all sorts of tasty ethnic food – Jamaican, Greek, Armenian, Laotian, Latin American, Soul Food, Portuguese – YUM!  AND crafts, lots of crafts, from some of my favorite people – Amanda at Brick Mill Studio and Liz at Made in Lowell.

The Friends of Western Avenue Studios are also hosting a Funk Brunch on Sunday morning – food, art, music, fun – we’ll be there, why not?  It’s a bargain too, $5 suggested donation.  If you’re in the Boston area, it would be a crime if you didn’t check out the Folk Festival!

Where else can you get African food and Greek food in the same place?

  1. The festival looks like a great time. I wish we had something similar in Kalamazoo! We are having taste of Kalamazoo right now, but it’s a lot smaller and pricier.

  2. hi marianne–

    sorry that i didn’t get to meet you on sunday, but thanks for coming to western ave for the brunch. i was so busy having fun that i took ZERO pix. if you happened to snap any, i’d love to see some.

    i was the announcer/organizer guy who nearly had a nervous breakdown at the mic introducing the band.
