This just in! More Weird Boston Events

This just in! I track 1600 events a year but sometimes I miss one, or they don’t post any information until too late in the week. This week I missed a bunch! Here they are, just for you.

This is a shout out to anyone from today’s NEFA / Boston Art Commission outreach I handed my card to.


This Just In
Asian Lunar New Year Feb 8 South Shore
This just in. It’s still Chinese New Year! Um, Asian New Year. They’ll have a lion dance and two stages of music and dance. Seems to be indoors. 2009: 10:30am-4pm.
North Quincy High School, 316 Hancock St, Quincy, MA. more
Chinese New Year @ Mary Chung Feb 8 Boston Metro
And MIT’s favorite chinese restaurant, Mary Chung, will have a smaller event, with food and they’ll have a lion dance. Not sure how they’ll make room for that in their crowded restaurant!
Mary Chung Restaurant, 464 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA. more
Boston African Film Festival Feb 6 – Feb 15 Boston Metro
It’s Black History Month and I finally found an appropriate event: a film series at the MFA. Featuring: lots of films you’ve never heard of.
Museum of Fine Ahhhhts, Boston, MA. more
Franklin Park Winter Snow Festival Feb 7 Boston Metro
Also I missed two festivals. This one’s in Franklin Park and looks smaller. 2009: 1pm.
Clubhouse at Franklin Park, 1 Circuit Dr, Dorchester, MA.617-442-4141. more
Acton, Winter Carnival at NARA Park Feb 7 Metro West
This one’s in Acton, with a cardboard sled race, dog sledding and a human sled race, fire spinners, curling demonstrations, snowball toss competition, and a lot more. 2009: 4-7:30pm.
NARA Park, 25 Ledge Rock Way, Acton, MA. more
The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Feb 7 Metro West
Here’s your chance to see the famous comedic play that digests all of William Shakespeare works into one short play. Amazing! 8pm.
The Amazing Things Arts Center 160 Hollis St, Framingham, MA.508-405-2787. more
Flea Market and Pancake Breakfast Feb 7 Boston Metro
Lots of used stuff. And pancakes! I’m only listing this because I don’t think I’ve *ever* listed a flea market before. And it’s winter. And I like pancakes! And I really wanna go!
Pierce School 85 Park Ave. Ext., Arlington, MA. more
USS Constitution 30th Annual Ship Model Show Feb 4 – Mar 7 Boston Metro
It’s a show by local model ship builders! It’s a month long which probably indicates no actual “festival” or social gathering. But may be worth a look.
USS Constitution Museum, Charlestown Navy Yard, Building 22, Charlestown, MA.617-242-5670. more
