Join in on the “So Salty” Fun at the Sawyer Free Library at 21 Main Street in downtown Gloucester on Saturday, January 21:
10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. “Snacks by the Sea with The Open Door”
The Sawyer Free Library and The Open Door will present a cooking demonstration of a salty snack for families. Throughout the day, we will celebrate local food traditions with a display of our historic cookbooks and recipes in the Local History collection.
1:00 to 2:00 p.m. “Sea Shanties and Maritime Heritage Through Folk Music“
Come listen, sing, engage, and celebrate maritime heritage and community with local musician and teacher Olivia Gale, who was born and raised in Gloucester. Join the fun as Olivia leads an exploration of history, story, and performance of sea shanties, nautical ballads, and other folk music written about the sea.
Both events are free and open to all ages to come and enjoy!
