Something I am really passionate about is my local community here in Palo Alto, CA. An excellent resource to help stay involved is the Community Calendar. The calendar allows users to view everything that is going on within the community for each specific day of the week. Here are a few great events that caught my eye!
Music on the Square, 2018
Located at Courthouse Square on Broadway Street, Music on the Square is in the midst of hosting its 12th year of free outdoor concerts throughout the summer. The best news? It’s every Friday through August 31st starting at 6:00 pm, and it’s free!. Come out and enjoy a variety of live music, including rock, blues, pop, latin and much more while being surrounded by a plethora of good food choices.

The storyline follows a Japanese-American students and the troubles he faced during WWII. Tickets are available online or at the box office starting at $35., and has various showtimes.
Redwood City Kiwanis Farmers Market
A great way to engage with your local community is by investing in it. Farmers markets are a great way to show support to the individuals and economy of the community by shopping local. Redwood City Kiwanis Farmers Market has been supplying residents with fresh, locally grown food since 1979. Located on the 500 Block of Arguello, they are open every Saturday, beginning at 8:00 am.
The Dancing Sowei Exhibition at Cantor Arts Center
For the next few months the Cantor Arts Center will be hosting The Dancing Sowei: Performing Beauty in Sierra Leone exhibition. On display will be a sowei mask that dates back to the women-only Sande Society who used dance to bring beauty to the world. Entry is free, and the center is open most days from 11:00 am- 5:00 pm.
This is only a few of the many events that will be happening in the Palo Alto community this summer. Be sure to check out the community calendar for yourself to see all the various ways to engage with the community.
