Music, Food, Local Vendors and Farmers' Market Return This Summer!

The City of Worcester and the Worcester Cultural Coalition are excited to announce the Out to Lunch Festival and Farmers' Market series will feature 3 weeks of live performances, crafters, food vendors and farmers, Thursdays August 18, September 1 and September 8 on the historic Worcester Common Oval. The festival will take place on those dates from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This summer marks the 12 year celebration of the wildly popular festival series which has grown from a single event featuring a handful of vendors into a multi-week local extravaganza including sensational talent, delicious food, handmade crafts and more!

Schedule:

Headlining Act: East Coast Soul describes themselves as "more than a band. We are a collective of Boston, New York and New England's finest musicians. We are a boutique collective of elite ensembles, each based on the same core repertoire and performance style, but inspired by the unique energy of their musicians and vocalists".

Intermission Act: Crocodile River Music brings a fully interactive and participatory workshop in West African Dance and Music. Students will learn and practice steps from traditional West African dances, while listening to live musical accompaniment provided by members of the CRM team. This high-energy experience is engaging and educational for students of all ages, backgrounds and capabilities.

The 12th annual Out to Lunch Festival and Farmers' Market series is produced by the City of Worcester in partnership with the Worcester Cultural Coalition.
