Celebrate Seekonk Day 2022

Posted

The Seekonk Cultural council is excited to announce that the second annual Celebrate Seekonk Day is scheduled for October 1st from 12:00 to 4:00 at the Seekonk Public Library, rain or shine.

A free day filled with music, entertainment, history, bubbles, laughter and fun for the whole family! Our goal is to spotlight the rich, and often unknown history of Seekonk, while focusing on the culture and talents of the citizens in our hometown.

Local Grammy winner, Bill Harley, will charm and entertain families with his special brand of song writing. Challenge your memory of historic Seekonk landmarks with an interactive presentation by a local history author. There will be stories, dance and music from the Pokanoket Tribe. You’ll be amazed by the talents of the Hurley Middle School Band and an athletic Karate demo. A musical comic performer will have your ears and bellies shaking with his Laugh and Learn program prepared just for us.

We will offer a gallery show with local professional artists works hanging alongside town student work. There will be an an opportunity for everyone attending to add to a community art project.

Other activities include Kindness Rock painting, Shadow puppets for preschoolers, community quilt display, face painting, group games, Master Gardener booth, Save-a-Pet special guests, meet royalty from the past - Count Rumford, lots and lots of bubbles, and more!

We will have representation of local government agencies, town boards and local small businesses as well.
Lunch and snacks will be available for purchase from Seekonk’s own Scialo’s Bakery.

Please bring a donation for Doorways to be entered into a special raffle.

There will be drop off and pick areas in the library parking lot, but parking places are limited. Overflow parking will be available in the Gammino Pond and Hurley Middle School parking lots or on local side streets.
We are excited to be partnering with the Seekonk Artist Network this year as they will be hosting their annual free Open Studio Tour on the same weekend. Come meet local, professional artists in their own environment. Not to be missed! Follow them on Facebook @SeekonkArtistNetwork.

It will be a free event with the general public invited. A day designed for every age group to take part in, and to Celebrate Seekonk!

This event is Sponsored by the Seekonk Cultural Council.
