Things To Do in Charlestown - July 27 through August 2

Go to a concert! Or two!

See a free movie! Or three!

And get rid of hazardous waste!



Read on for our recommendations for the next week.

  • Also on Friday, at 8 pm, we have the first of the free outdoor movies in Ninigret Park, showing Shrek Forever After. If you plan ahead by calling 364-1222 you can also camp out in the park.
  • On Saturday from 8 am until 1 pm you can drop off hazardous waste at the Eco Depot at the State Salt Barn in Cross' Mills. It's best to make a reservation to reduce your wait.

  • The Tony® award-winning musical Hairspray continues at Theatre By the Sea. Marylou Butler provides a review here. She also attended rehearsals and wrote interesting articles here, here, and here.
  • Those visiting town will appreciate hearing that we have these Farmers' Markets scheduled: Friday from 9 am until noon at the Cross' Mills Public Library and Saturday from 9 am until 1 pm at the Cross Mills Farmers' Market property across from the fire station under construction.
