Come have some fun and support Maritime Gloucester this Thursday as Scott Memhard serves up the drinks at Cape Ann Brewing. Live music, chances to win some fun prizes, a good opportunity to support the educational programs at Maritime Gloucester and some great food and beer from Cape Ann Brewing.
15% of all proceeds goes to Maritime Gloucester, so bring your friends and your appetite! The fun runs from 6:00 to 9:00pm. Hope to see you there!
The first night of Deck the Docks was a great beginning to our event!
Special thanks to Captain Stefan Edick for capturing and sharing the campus lights from the Fitz Henry Lane house! Our pier is all decked out for holiday cheer.
The gallery saw the opening night of “Deck Your Walls Art Show” with some great works by local and regional artists. Over 141 pieces are in this show and each one of them is for sale! You will not want to miss seeing the Schooner Gallery all decked out for this show.
AND WE ARE JUST GETTING STARTED! Trees, wreaths, art, crafts, gifts, good friends and a lot of fun are all in store for the next 2 days! Get your tree or wreath any time Friday, Saturday or Sunday — while supplies last! Take a picture with Santa from 11 to 1 on Saturday.
Maritime Gloucester is working hard to get ready for the first annual Deck the Docks! We have so many fun things to do! Get your tree, buy a wreath, shop for gifts, DIY crafts, Santa pics in a Dory, etc.
Today’s Star feature: Our “Deck Your Walls” Art Gallery (thanks to partner group seARTS!) with over 135 works. seARTS put it best:
We put out the call for art and were FLOODED with response. So the walls will be FILLED with incredible works from incredible artists from Cape Ann and [way] beyond!
It’s a perfect way to get a great gift for the holidays, support Artists and support Maritime Gloucester, and we hope you’ll join us for the show, the reception, and do some of your gift shopping in the BEST way possible!
