Description
Historical buildings from the late 19th century line the streets of the Natick Center Cultural District, one of nearly 30 designated cultural districts in the state. The area embraces artists' studios and art galleries; a town common where free concerts, festivals and other events take place; and a variety of independent businesses. At the district's core is The Center for Arts in Natick, 14 Summer St. Housed in the restored 1875 Central Fire Station, the venue presents musical and theatrical performances as well as creative workshops and classes; phone (508) 647-0097.
Grade-schoolers itching to meet Eddy the billy goat and Lucky the barn cat flock to Natick Community Organic Farm, 117 Eliot St., a working farm founded in 1975 that offers hands-on education year-round from dawn to dusk. Seasonal farm events include Maple Magic Day, which offers maple sugaring demonstrations, and the Spring Spectacular, an old-fashioned fair offering hayrides, nature-based arts and crafts, and other family-friendly activities. Phone (508) 655-2204.
