Second Saturdays

Downtown Cambridge shops and galleries invite you to celebrate with them the Second Saturday of every month from 5-9pm, when galleries host free receptions with wine and snacks and shops offer specials and sales. Downtown Cambridge restaurants are always crowded on Second Saturdays, so be sure to make reservations. Details on the Cambridge Main Street website.
