Cambridge Calendar September 2017 Edition

CCTV - Fri, 08/04/2017 - 10:49am

Nicola Williams joined us to talk about the 25 anniversary of the Cambridge Carnival. It happens on September 10 between Central Square and Kendall Square and is filled with music, dancing, and costumes. You'll also hear about Jamaica Plain Open Studios and a killer workshop about owls (since they are not what they seem). And, as usual, we have a tsunami of other events all over the metro area.

The Cambridge Calendar television program pulls together details on all the events in Cambridge - so that you don't have to! We aggregate community calendars from the city government, local non-profits, universities, and community groups and present it all in a condensed 15-minute event clearinghouse program. Forget looking through local listings and websites for things to do. Let us tell it to you straight. And, by the way, our own online community calendar can tell you lots about the city and it's a great place to list your own events, too (cambridgecalendar.org).

This program is produced by staff and volunteers at Cambridge Community Television to fill the gap in Cambridge news and current affairs programming. Check out all of our local events programming at https://www.cctvcambridge.org/productions/cambridge_calendar or on our Vimeo channel at https://vimeo.com/channels/calendar.
