Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth at Thursdays@Newhall Events The Candyland SENSES Block Party Sweetens up June
The city’s Thursdays@Newhall series, presented by Valencia Auto Center, rolls into summer with free events in Old Town Newhall during the month of June. Thursdays@Newhall is an ongoing opportunity for residents of Santa Clarita to attend free shows, concerts and special events on Thursdays throughout the year.
The schedule kicks off on June 7 when the Cha-Cha comes to JAM Sessions from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. D’Wilfri DanceArt and Entertainment, based locally in Santa Clarita, will teach participants the ins and outs of the dance. In between instructional sessions, the public can enjoy live music and show off what they’ve learned. JAM Sessions is hosted in conjunction with the Ford Theatre Foundation, bringing dance and original live performances to the Old Town Newhall Library, located at 24500 Main Street.
On June 14, local musicians will take the stage for Note by Note inside The MAIN from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Note by Note is a free musical showcase delighting audiences with a variety of genres. Bands, duos and soloists will perform a wide range of styles, including rock, folk, Celtic, Americana, blues, jazz, country, experimental, western and more. Featured performers in June include Jeff Mann, Christopher Ramirez, Tracy Lee Nelson and The New Mexican. Artists interested in performing at Note by Note can learn more at ThursdaysAtNewhall.com/NotebyNote.
A world full of sweets descends on Main Street at the Candyland SENSES Block Party on June 21 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. There will be select food tastings, Gingerbread Plum Trees, and opportunities to wander through the Lollipop Woods and Peppermint Forest. Be careful not to get stuck in the Molasses Swamp. Adults who believe that candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker can grab a drink from the on-street bar hosted by Newhall Refinery.
Thursdays@Newhall wraps up the month on June 28 with the New Heights Artist Development Series. This month’s panel discussion is titled, “Variety Is the Spice of Life: How to Develop Multiple Creative Outlets,” and features artists who have developed a variety of ways to express themselves creatively while being able to monetize those activities. The three panelists in June are Susan Lee, Ian Johnston and Jennifer Fischer. Learn more about each panelist by visiting
