Also coming up this weekend – today is also the beginning of Culture Days. At The Conrad Centre of Performing Arts is Round:About / Pluralism in Performance, which begins at 8pm. There will be music and theatrical performances inspired by many different cultures, and, it’s a free event.
In Wellesley is the Apple Butter and Cheese Festival.
Also on Sunday at Victoria Park is The Word on the Street Festival.
