City of Santa Clarita Announces September Lineup for Thursdays @ Newhall Series
Free Themed Events to Feature Chocolate, Samba and the Land of Oz
Santa Clarita’s favorite nightlife events continue this September with the City’s free Thursdays @ Newhall series, presented by Galpin Subaru. The free events will be held on Main Street in Old Town Newhall on the first, second and third Thursday of the month, including Art SLAM on September 4, JAM Sessions on September 11, and SENSES on September 18.
On September 4 from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., a chocolate-themed Art SLAM will turn Main Street into a Wonka-worthy wonderland. At this FREE event, attendees can participate in an interactive chocolate art exhibit by the ARTree, see local artist Lorelle Miller paint with chocolate, and watch as a beautiful chocolate sculpture takes shape at the hands of Chef Robin Robins.
Art SLAM will also feature live cooking demonstrations and the opportunity to sample dishes from local eateries, including Cocoa Crusted Pork Shoulder from Chef Judy Gilbert of Culinary Wonders, Traditional Mole Poblano from Chef Raul Bojorquez of El Trocadero, and a truffle-making demonstration from Clarice’s Cake and Candy Supply. Main Street storefronts will offer chocolate pairings, including Chocolate Mousse Sliders at Newhall Refinery, Muscat and Truffle Tastings at Pulchella Winery, and Port and Chocolate Tastings at the Repertory East Playhouse.
Thursdays @ Newhall continues on September 11 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. with JAM Sessions. The FREE interactive event will bring the energy of Rio de Janeiro to Main Street with a Samba Dance Party and performances by Viver Brasil Dance Company. The family-friendly event is presented in partnership with the Ford Theatre Foundation, the James Irvine Foundation and the City of Santa Clarita. To learn more, visit FordJamSessions.org.
September’s Thursdays @ Newhall series culminates with the City’s popular SENSES block party on September 18 from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The free Emerald City-themed event will take attendees down the yellow brick road and over the rainbow into the Land of Oz with whimsical décor, a “Dunk the Witch” activity and live performances by Savannah Burrows and the Skinny Little Twits.
